National Bullying Prevention Month (NBPM) held during October | Unity Day is Wednesday, October 19
A month long event to prevent childhood bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. On October 19th, plan to wear and share the color orange — as a tangible representation of the supportive, universal message that our society wants to prevent bullying, and is united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

Teens Against Bullying bookmarks, new design now available!
The updated design of the Teens Against Bullying bookmark encourages middle and high school students with the message, “Creating a World Without Bullying.” The reverse side helps teens think of the actions they can take to change their world.
Student Action Plan Against Bullying
Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.
I used to be bullied to because I was short and I was also not athletic so I was isolated
I've also been bullied for having a brown pigment on my skin.
Please stop bullying someone. Be kind. Make sure everybody do not bullying students and respect and be kind. And if something bothers you again tell teachers and adults.
I care because I don't think it's right some people are treated. Bullies may be going through a bad time in their life so that's probably why they bully people but I don't think it's right to bully. Even if your just joking with the person they might take it to far. Bullying can cause a lot of bad things to happen like self harm or even worse. If you see someone getting bullied or if you're the one that's being bullied please get help.
I care because I grew up bullied by people and raised among ones that bullied me or wouldn't step up for me, and I get very bad bouts of depression. I absolutely despise bullying and have tried to stop others spreading it, and don't want anyone to feel the way I have.
I care because i like to help others and it has happened to me before and i don´t want others to have to go through that as well
For months now at my school I’ve been bullied by this group of girls, or as me and my friend who we’ll call Blondie like to refer to them as, the bully buddies.
They’ve been attacking me and Blondie and my other friend who we’ll call Blue Eyes, for months. The attacks range from physical violence to verbal threats to fake accusations. One day the leader, who we’ll call Snotface, threw all kinds of homophobic, racist, inappropriate, disrespectful comments at me and Blue Eyes. We reported Snotface and lo and behold, a teacher actually did something about it! Snotface and her friend (alias Two-Sided) spent the rest of the day in our vice principal’s office being questioned. Snotface’s parents and my parents were called in and Snotface was given a month of detention. The principal is also putting in measures to protect me Blondie and Blue Eyes from Snotface and Two-Sided. The moral of this story is: If you report someone once and nothing happens, KEEP TRYING. Tell as many people with as much description as you can, till the bullies get what’s coming to them. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true. And remember: you are smart, strong, beautiful, and loved. And don’t let anyone change that.
