October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Bullying takes on many forms, but no matter the form, it is a behavior that scars and hurts many kids. These kids grow up with this emotional baggage and it impacts every decision and action for the rest of their lives.

There is a groundbreaking movement to raise awareness about the devastating impact and often long-term effects that bullying can cause in our nation’s youth. The result was PACER’s creation of National Bullying Prevention Month. Each October, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center leads a campaign that unites individuals around the nation – and the world – with the powerful message that bullying should never be a part of childhood.

National Bullying Prevention Month is a wonderful opportunity to prevent bullying by encouraging everyone to act with kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. This year, a worldwide pandemic and a growing movement for racial equity and social justice have highlighted the need to unite communities for a better future. Now more than ever, it is crucial to join together in creating a world that is kinder, more accepting, and more inclusive.


This month-long event is also a time to show solidarity for the one out of every five students who report being bullied each year. Bullying isn’t a childhood rite of passage; it has real implications for a child’s education, health, and safety now, and well into their future
