October 10: Unity Day is Celebrated; Part of National Bullying Prevention Month Events

"The End of Bullying Begins with Me" is the message during PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month in October. It’s a time when communities can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach and education. PACER created the campaign in 2006 with a one-week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort that encourages everyone to take an active role in the bullying prevention movement.

Resources from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center make it easy to take action. Check out the resources online at www.pacer.org/bullying.

Also, be sure to wear orange on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 for Unity Day - "Make it Orange and Make it End." If you care about students who are bullied and want bullying to end, make your color orange on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can link together - in schools, communities and online - and send one large, orange message of support to students who have experienced bullying. In 2011, Ellen DeGeneres promoted the cause on television by wearing orange and reminding millions of viewers about the importance of bullying prevention. Facebook supports the cause during October by providing users with information on PACER activities on its safety, educator, and privacy pages. Learn more about Unity Day at www.pacer.org/bullying/nbpm/unity-day.asp.
