To raise awareness, educate others and inspire a call to action against bullying. Join the PACER movement during October’s National Bullying Prevention Month. PACER created the campaign in 2006 with a one-week event which has now evolved into a month-long effort. It’s a time when communities can unite nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities, outreach, and education. “The End of Bullying Begins With Me!”
