Make It Orange & Make It End! Unite Against Bullying!

It is estimated that as many as 160,000 kids stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied. Bullying in all forms, verbal, physical and cyber, can drastically damage self esteem, cause poor academic success, and lead to suicide.

Recognized as an important resource by the U.S. Department of Education, Pacer's National Bullying Prevention Center calls for October 10th as Unity Day -- a time to stand up and get involved in activities -- at the very least, the wearing of the color orange-- that promote greater awareness and prevention of bullying in our society, and particularly in our schools.

In collaboration with the Center for Opportunities and Outcomes for People with Disabilities, we offer a range of educational activities to "make it orange and make it end." So get involved and learn more about efforts underway to Stop Bullying by checking out the following:

  • Twitter: Follow the Center staff throughout the month of October, beginning October 1st. Join them at Twitter@FCAA2012
