Create Change within Your School

Does your school have a bullying prevention policy? Does it have a bullying prevention committee? Do students know what to do if they are being bullied or see bullying? If the answer to any of these questions is no, consider taking these steps to change what is happening in your school.

Show Policymakers You Care

Show you care by telling your state and national elected officials what you think about bullying and what you want them to do about it. Those officials include your state governor and legislators, as well as your U.S. senators and representatives. Letter-writing campaigns and in-person meetings are two effective methods of reaching out to policymakers.
