Our Bullying Prevention Partners

The following organizations have pledged to work in collaboration with AFT and other stakeholders to mount a community response to the community issue of bullying. Additional resources and materials on bullying may be found on their websites.

Cartoon Network
The "Stop Bullying: Speak Up" campaign encourages the bystander to ‘speak up’ when they see bulling by getting an adult. With support from LG Electronics, Stop Bullying: Speak Up is providing free online bullying-prevention kits to help teachers, parents and communities begin or enhance their anti-bullying work. www.cartoonnetwork.com/promos/stopbullying/index.html

GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students. GLSEN works with educators, policy makers, community leaders and students on the urgent need to address anti-LGBT behavior and bias in schools. Through research-based interventions, GLSEN provides resources and support for schools to implement effective and age-appropriate anti-bullying programs to improve school climate for all students. www.glsen.org

Not In Our School
Across the country, students and teachers are joining to create schools that are free from bullying and intolerance. They're part of a movement called Not In Our School. The NIOS videos, activities and lesson plans showcase the immense capacity of young people who are creating new ways to make their schools safe for everyone.

In addition to activities during Bullying Prevention Month (October), this site includes resources, tools, and materials for teachers to use throughout the year to help raise awareness of bullying prevention. www.pacer.org/bullying/bpam/index.asp
