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

being bullied is not the way to go .. when you talk about someone and you don't know anything about them , things can go wrong .. you know nothing that happens to them behind closed doors on a daily basis .. so put a stop to what you do . it's sad , i've changed because i was bullied and it hanged my life and outlook on life it doesn't feel good to be hurt so just make a difference in your community . reciently i've started to make my school realize that bullying is getting out of hand .. i want to make a difference to all over the world and prevent bullying from happening because EVERYONE is equal and the same . NOBODIES perfect .. you are you and just remember that <3 love your self for who you are & stand upto bullying.

No child or teen should ever be subject to emotional torment just because they choose to be who they are.  I don't know when bullying became such a tremendous problem, but it has to STOP!

Don't give up! The awful things people say about you and do to you, you don't deserve any of those things and I'm sorry it is happening to you, but don't give up you are worth so much more. You are beautiful, smart, talented, and ton of other awesome things! :)

I have been bullied for a long time and because of that loads of my friends were gone. But it was usually cause I was always getting used cause every year I had a different friend and then they still left me. I told my family but they told me that you don't need friends and i usually got bullied because well i am not sure but my friend told me this that because i smell and i think that i don't and then ontop of that i am going to a new school and me and my family always care about my brother and not me. Even when I want to cry the tears won't come out and i made a promise that i wouldn't cry infront of my parents cause they scold me if i do.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
