PACER is supportive of all persons who desire to be free and safe in their own communities. We are aware of the history of racism and social injustice in this country that needs to be changed. The tragic death of Mr. Floyd has highlighted the injustices in our country. We know that Black children and their families experience significant disparities in education, health, housing, and the justice system. We will work to ensure just systems for all families. We can do better.

I care because I know how it feels to be bullied in every way and I don't want people to get hurt like I did. Even if you're a jock, nerd, fashion diva,  even bullies don't deserve to be bullied. Please stop bullying. It can hurt people mentally and physically. It's not right to bully.

Other kids started to bully me about 4 years ago. They started to call me by names. Those names hurt me really much. Everyone starts to call me by the name. At the start only my classmates called me with it. Then everyone i knew in the school. Then people in my new school. And now.. Almost 70 different people had called me with the name. It really hurts and i dont know how i can do this. 2 years more an i can finish my school and forget all my schoollife. 7 years of being called.by a mean name. I often cry myself to sleep..

When I was little there was this Kid named *Katlynn and she was always being made fun of becuase of her weight. She finally got so sick of it she just became one of those kids that keep to their selfs.....I tried to be her friend but she just shrugged me off and told me she didnt need friends she had her brother........Bullying is Ruining lives~!

I cant stand when i see people bully others. I dont understand the reasoning behind it...it does not make you stronger, its just plan-ole-mean! If you have ever been bullied just know that your family and friends always love and care about you. Dont let someone (who probably doesn't really KNOW you) decide your fate!!! Stand up and talk to a teacher or you family... They are there to help!! Dont let it go! STAND UP!! With lots of love xoxo
