October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month

This month, groups across the country committed to stop bullying will release new resources, campaigns, and efforts aimed at bringing awareness to this important issue facing our youth.  Bullying prevention must be addressed, and one way to accomplish this is through educating ourselves, our communities and the youth in our lives.

What started as an awareness week initiated by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in October 2006, the event has evolved into a month’s worth of events and activities to raise awareness and provide the latest resources to those who need it.

Follow along with us this month as we share tips and resources each week throughout October.

You can also join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter. October is a great time to help raise awareness for this important issue, but we know you're working hard all year to do what you can to prevent bullying. Use the hashtag #StopBullying365 to share your story and tell us what you're doing to prevent bullying in your community  read more
