Today is Unity Day! Unite Against Bullying!
I’ve previously shared a few resources on bullying, (Family Matters, Netsmartz, Anti-bullying App)but wanted to acknowledge and support Unity Day. There’s an excellent resource from PACER for you to download, Bullying StudentActionPlan. While we focus on bullying within the four walls of school, we know bullying happens in many places across many ages…it is not limited to children in school. Please take time today to encourage those around you to choose words wisely, to speak up when something is wrong, to stand up for one who is being bullied, hold firm BUT extend grace to bullies…they may not know any other way of being.
For more information on Unity Day, check out the National Bullying Prevention Month link from PACER Center.
