October is National Bullying Prevention Month


In 2006, PACER founded National Bullying Prevention Month, which is held annually during October. This month-long event is a time for communities nationwide to prevent bullying and promote kindness, acceptance and inclusion through events, activities and education. During National Bullying Prevention Month—and throughout the year—the community is encouraged to use these creative resources to engage, educate and inspire others to join the movement. Unity Day, is the signature event of the month, a time to wear and share orange to show unity for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion and to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.
