PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, Los Angeles, hosted a resource booth at The Fox Family Foundation Vision Fair on October 15, 2022. The Fox Family Foundation, along with RespectAbility, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting stigmas against and employing people with disabilities, hosted the fair on the Cal State University Los Angeles Campus to offer free vision screenings for those 3 and up. This inaugural event was led by a team of alumni who are blind and have low vision from RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program. PACER’s NBPC was happy to support these organizations and attendees with resources on bullying prevention, handing out hundreds of bookmarks, Unity Day posters, and more to families, educators, health care providers and others.

Many Minnesota kids are already off for MEA weekend, but those who were in school Wednesday may have experienced "Unity Day," a day when students nationwide wear orange for bullying prevention. At Centennial Elementary, fifth graders like Amayrani Hernandez Caute didn't leave it at that. She and her peers hosted a special assembly for the school's second and third graders, teaching them what bullying means, how to handle it, and what can happen as a result. Hernandez Caute says she was in second grade when she got a real example of what it means when another student repeatedly bullied her. Watch the full KARE11 News interview.

Congratulations to everyone whose videos were selected for the Spring 2022 "Students with Solutions" contest to produce short (one-to-three-minute) videos using template scripts! Producing the videos was a creative opportunity for adults to engage youth in bullying prevention conversation while involving them in developing resources that can help educate their peers.

When Quest Academy was asked, "What impact did creating the video have on those involved?" Their response, "Our students bonded while making this video. They grew in respect for each other’s different gifts and opinions and in confidence for their own. They grew in their ability to collaborate, listen to each other, and compromise with each other."
