October is National Bullying Prevention Month
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. Tomorrow is Unity Day on which staff and students are encouraged to wear orange. That’s when scores of people around the country will join the movement to “Make it Orange and Make it End!” In 2011, Ellen DeGeneres promoted the cause on television by wearing orange and reminding millions of viewers about the importance of bullying prevention. Facebook supports the cause during October by providing users with information on PACER activities on its safety, educator, and privacy pages. The Committee for Children web site offered this poster as a free download.
