Order and wear your one-of-a-kind official orange t-shirt to show that you are contributing to a kinder, more inclusive and accepting world. Orders are open during September and October so that you can wear the shirt during National Bullying Prevention Month, on Unity Day, and all year long! All net proceeds will benefit PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center to help us continue to work together to prevent bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
Do you know an individual or group who took action to make our communities, schools and the web kinder, more accepting and inclusive? If yes, nominate them for a Unity Award! Our student panel will judge all nominations. Then, on May 23rd, we will recognize those who have made outstanding contributions to help create a world without bullying.
Twin brothers, Stacy and Sterling, decided to start a music group called Dat Stern; they wanted to make music that could inspire people and help others. Stacy states, “My brother and I suffered from bullying all throughout middle and high school. So, when we decided to make music, that was our main focus. Our goal is to put an end to bullying.”
Questions about bullying? We have answers! Students and K-12 classrooms are invited to send a video or email [email protected] with their question. Starting in January, selected entries will be featured in our weekly “PACERTalks About Bullying” video series.

I care, because making others feel bad won't make yourself feel better. Does making someone feel like they're worth nothing make you feel like you do? Perhaps you yourself have been targeted before, but is targeting others the correct response and solution? Or are you just turning yourself into the bully that bullied you?

I care because it affects EVERYONE.Even adults can't hide from it. BULLYING must be stopped! I have been bullied and cyber-bullied myself and it is not nice. Having your school trip money ripped up is NOT fun. Having hate written about you on your social media is NOT fun! Stop thinking it is.
You're not superior to me. You have flaws just like me. I'm just not as insecure as you are.

I care because this always happens to me and want other people to feel happy about themselves.
I care because it is horrible to be bullied or hurt. The people that bully you are just jealous or maybe they have been bullied too. Don't be afraid to speak up. 🙂
