PACER is supportive of all persons who desire to be free and safe in their own communities. We are aware of the history of racism and social injustice in this country that needs to be changed. The tragic death of Mr. Floyd has highlighted the injustices in our country. We know that Black children and their families experience significant disparities in education, health, housing, and the justice system. We will work to ensure just systems for all families. We can do better.

I care because I know how it feels to be bullied in every way and I don't want people to get hurt like I did. Even if you're a jock, nerd, fashion diva,  even bullies don't deserve to be bullied. Please stop bullying. It can hurt people mentally and physically. It's not right to bully.

Ive been called every name possible. Dont just be a stand by. The person bullying me pushed me into lockers and stuff. Then she went to the princapal and she told him i was bullying her. And I get hurt and cry myself to sleep and it hurts.

I hear the pain and despair from students, and know adults that still hurt from things people did or said in school.  I'm a teacher, and every teacher at every school can make a difference in a student's life by standing up to the bullies.  We have to say no to bullying EVERY TIME, EVERY DAY.  Kids who are bullied can't think about Math or Science.  We want students to THRIVE, not just survive one more day.

bullying is wrong on every level. i just read the story about Phoebe Prince, and it tore me to pieces. my heart and my pain goes out to her and her family and friends. the years of high school can be so rough and for her to have moved from Ireland to Massachusetts was a great accomplishment. she came to the land of pure hope and oppurtunity. and instead she went through pain and humilitation. it is one thing to humiliate a person for their race or skin color, but to critize them for being who they are, is a whole different level of rudeness. i believe in self love and inner confidence, and no one should have to feel unwanted or beautiful because of bullying. Phoebe will always be on my heart and mind. and i hope i am able to help stop the spreading of bullying!
