2019 Benefit Video: We Have Hope, The Story of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center

Premiering at PACER’s Annual Benefit on May 11, 2019, this video features Paula Goldberg, PACER’s Executive Director, sharing the behind-the-scenes story which set in motion the 2006 creation of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.


Bullying Prevention 101

We have teamed up with Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation® initiative to develop “Bullying Prevention 101,” a free educational resource designed to equip teachers, counselors and other educators with tools to empower students to prevent bullying and stand up for kindness. This comprehensive online module provides resources and engaging activities designed to help students develop the skills to advocate for their peers, whether you are just beginning the bullying prevention conversation in your school or taking further steps to spread kindness. The material is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

I was bullied when I was in highschool. I tried to commit suicide because it was that bad. Recently I met a boy who is 15 and he was bullied so bad that he is in a coma at this moment. The bullies nearly took his life and they currently unprosecuted and run free. There doesn't look like ever will be charged. Bullycide is very serious and I am trying to raise awareness. This should never happen to anyone.

Darby, 20, Pa

I used to get bullied in the 5th grade. I didn't have many friends, and this group of girls kept saying mean things to me. I kept telling people about it and none of them seemed to care. I just told myself to hold on. Then Middle School came, and I made some friends. Their all so suppourtive and really nice to me. Don't get me wrong, my life isn't perfect. But I'm 100 times happier than what I was. If there's one thing I'll promise you, is that it gets better. :)

Megan, 12, Missouri

I care because I have been bullied partly because of my height in elementary school.  I feel sorry for those who have been bullied because I can have empathy for them since I've been through bullying.  

Anna, 10, New Hampshire

While I'm sitting at home crying wondering how I got put into this situation, your hear talking to me on the phone telling me everything is going to be alright. I care because I may not be here right now, but because of those of my friends who have been here for me, have helped me get through my struggles. Bullies only make me stronger now that I know I can be brave. I can stand up for what I know is right.
Thank you bullies for making me a better person.
Thank you too all those who have helped me over come my struggles
And to all those who are still struggling today, everything is going to be okay and each and every one of you are unique and different, and in any humanly way possible beautiful. <3

Sierra, 16, Wisconsin

I care because when my son was battered on the school bus the school didn't do anything about it till I stood up.   I care because some times the people who should, don't.
