Advocacy in Action

Take Action for National Bullying Prevention Month

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, an opportunity to take action to promote positive school environments and help prevent bullying so all kids can be safe and well. Bullying can cause physical, emotional, and academic harm to everyone involved. Effective bullying prevention is critical to promote the well-being of all kids.

Teaching life skills in the classroom, in tandem with anti-bullying programs, has been shown to help prevent bullying. By fostering positive classroom norms, cultivating empathy, and teaching students to build relationships, solve problems, and regulate emotions, life skill-building helps create safe and supportive environments.

Take action now with our campaign, All Kids Safe and Well. Use the form to ask your state and federal lawmakers to prioritize access to primary prevention, which includes life skill-building, to help prevent bullying. We’ve provided a prewritten letter that you can edit if you’d like to include a personal message.

Thank you for advocating with us!
