October marks National Bullying Prevention Month, an occasion initiated by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which brings together communities around the world to unite in a campaign to keep all youth safe from bullying. National Bullying Prevention Month is supported by hundreds of schools, community members, major corporations, and celebrities, and it is an opportunity to encourage everyone to unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. The National Bullying Prevention Center offers resources for students, parents, schools, and communities to address bullying. Engagement begins with its three websites created to target a specific audience: PACER.org/bullying, for parents and professionals; PACERTeensAgainstBullying.org, for middle school and high school students; and PACERKidsAgainstBullying.org, for elementary school students. These websites provide information about bullying at school, in communities, and online, and support to those who experience bullying. The sites include classroom toolkits and activities, videos, personal stories, statistics, and resources to raise awareness of this important issue. They also feature a pledge that children and teens can take to work together against bullying.
