Join the movement! The End of Bullying Begins with Me: that’s the message during PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month in October. It’s a time when communities can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach, and education. Resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center make it easy to take action. PACER created the campaign in 2006 with a one-week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort that encourages everyone to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement. PACER offers a variety of resources to use during October — and throughout the year — to inspire, educate and involve others to join the movement and prevent bullying where you live. Check out all of the different events and activities and make plans to get involved. Remember, the End of Bullying Begins With You!

Involve Students

The WE WILL Generation is a program designed to inspire student to student engagement to lead the bullying prevention movement! Students say, “We will be the generation that says, ‘This is our issue and we will be the solution.’”  The program includes education on what students can do to help someone being bullied, ideas for connecting older students with younger students, and a student taught curriculum.
