You Have the Power to Prevent Bullying

Upstanders, assemble! Captain Compassion® returns with sidekick Kid Kinder® to empower others to recognize, report, and refuse bullying in all its forms. Every week in October, we’ll publish a new webcomic created to help kids discover and use their upstander power. Follow along and share our Captain Compassion resources to help us create safer communities by standing up to bullying together.
