Bystander Power


Reports or Helps Report Bullying


Stands Up for Someone Being Bullied

Includes Everyone

Studies show bystanders are the largest group affected by bullying—70% to 90% of students say they witness bullying at school regularly. But that doesn’t mean bystanders are just passive observers of bullying—they have the POWER to defuse bullying situations, SUPPORT their peers, and HELP create a positive environment where KINDNESS and RESPECT are the norms.
