October is National Bullying Prevention Month!


The Pacer Center whose website is the home for The National Center for Bullying Prevention has declared October the month to get involved in order to protect those who can't protect themselves.

The PACER Center's goal (Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights) is to create "opportunities and enhance the quality of life of children and young adults with disabilities and their families, based on the concept of parents helping parents."

According to their website, This year marks the fifth anniversary of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month. "Traditionally held the first week in October, the event has been expanded to include activities, education, and awareness building for the entire month.

During the event—and throughout the year—you are encouraged to use the creative resources (found here) to engage, educate, and inspire others to join the movement."
