The end of bullying begins with children and teens taking action! More than one out of five students is bullied, and nearly every single student can find a peer who has suffered from it. Bullying and cyber bullying continue to be a serious and potentially life-threatening issue in our modern world, and it impacts thousands of students every single day. PACER’s goal during the month of October is to bring awareness to the effects of bullying, and to provide resources to prevent it.
For children, visit PACERKidsAgainstBullying.org to see how the youngest students can contribute toward stopping bullying.
For teens in middle and high school, TeensAgainstBullying.org will challenge you to make a commitment to support those who have been bullied, and to spread kindness and acceptance among your peers.
An online curriculum is also offered for students to encourage student-to-student conversation. PACER.org/WeWillGen.
Children and teens can both take the pledge to stop bullying at either of the above websites, and try to contribute to a world where zero out of five students are bullied.
Unity Day is October 24, 2018. Wear orange and come together to provide a powerful message against bullying! For a look at everything PACER has to offer on bullying prevention and Unity Day, go to PACER.org/bullying.
What are Human Rights? These short, powerful videos provide quick overviews of 30 basic human rights.
The Human Rights Education Institute can provide collaboration and expertise on cultural diversity and human-rights related topics to student clubs and groups. That can mean helping with or developing projects, providing volunteer and service opportunities, facilitating contacts with other individuals and groups, and even providing a venue for programs.
The institute partners with clubs and groups at North Idaho College, for example, and is always looking for collaboration opportunities at area schools, whether they be college-level, K-12, public, private, charter, or a homeschool association. For more information, contact us via email or at 208-292-2359.
