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

i'm always made fun of because most of my friends are girls. i try not to let it get to me but it always takes a tole on my self-esteem. but then my friends help me through it and they always make me feel better

I was bullied in 8th & 9th grade. I was taken out of school for it to stop. Teachers, principals, deans, ect. Did not help me when I needed it. I wasn't able to finish High school because of this growing problem. I got my GED, & now some of my siblings are faceing this ordeal. We need to band together & put a stop to this once & for all!!!! I tweeted to help spread the awareness.

justin, 13, labrador,NL

i was bullied too at my school, in my school there was so many bully, and the teachers had no problem with that.. the teachers like just shut up if there have a bully at my school. and guys, if you don't like the word of "bully" at school.. just be quiet and smile to your friend that said that words. because i believe you've BEAUTY inside, and your bully friend just see your UGLINESS. they don't realize that they themselves aren't perfect. SO JUST SMILE AND BE STRONG :)

Nadya, 14, Indonesia

I have always felt the need to be different and students at my school don't  like that. Everyone blends in and molds together, but the people who ruin that are bullied. I was one of the people who ruined it. I would get so upset that I would cut myself and find any excuse to harm myself. I still don't blend in perfectly, but I've learned to embrace it because that's what life is all about. It's about being different. My heart and all my love goes out to Phoebe and her family and any other person who is bullied

Caitlin, 15, VA
