Premiering at PACER’s Annual Benefit on May 11, 2019, this video features Paula Goldberg, PACER’s Executive Director, sharing the behind-the-scenes story which set in motion the 2006 creation of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.


Bullying Prevention 101

We have teamed up with Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation® initiative to develop “Bullying Prevention 101,” a free educational resource designed to equip teachers, counselors and other educators with tools to empower students to prevent bullying and stand up for kindness. This comprehensive online module provides resources and engaging activities designed to help students develop the skills to advocate for their peers, whether you are just beginning the bullying prevention conversation in your school or taking further steps to spread kindness. The material is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

Everyone is someone. Someone with a heart, with a family, with someone who loves you somewhere. We are all here together trying to get through this life to move on to the next. I care because NO ONE should live in hell on earth. I care because we are all in this together. I care because we are all beautiful on the inside and out and most people are not told this as often as they should be. We are all different and that is what makes this world amazing. Don't be afraid to be you, don't let ugly things people say get the best of you. The best way to get back at them is simply not let IT affect you! Life is beautiful and so are you... embrace it, celebrate it, and don't let ANYONE ruin this experience on Earth. Life is short and precious. BE YOU AND BE PROUD!

i care because i feel alone and i get bullied by sommeone who i thought cared about me treats me as if their disgusted. they say mean things like fat, ugly, their dissapointed in me cause i cant be the person they want me to be. and ive tried self harming and at first it helped but now i'm scarred for life. and the words they've said are hurtful and they will always haunt me and i got pushed in front of a seeding car because someone i thought cared thinks my sister is better than me and they think im fat and ugly and that i shouldn't deserve the privelge to live. so now i deal with self image issues and i hope one day i can put this all behind me .

I care because as a kid, I was very quiet and shy.  Because of this, I think people took advantage and bullied me.  As I'm older and have kids of my own, he tells me stories of how cruel kids can sometimes be.  I think this is a very common thing.  He stands up for himself but that doesn't mean the comments do not hurt him.
