Student Action Plan Against Bullying

Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.

Tell Us Why You Care

  • I get bullied because I have really brown hair, my hair is short, and I have bangs. they call me 'Dora' and they're not trying to just laugh with me there making fun of me. I always try to stand up for myself but I always get so scared. it really hurts my feelings because I have done nothing to the person bullying me, or nothing in life to deserve this. I try my best in everything I do, I am kind, I am generous, I'm selfless yet, I still get bullied. this doesn't feel fair. it doesn't feel right. I have amazing best friends, yet I still feel like they don't want me because I'm insecure because people bully me. even though I know they love me, and I know I love them.

  • Bullying makes people depressed and can make them feel bad about themselves and doubt themselves and i want others to know that bullying is not ok. Some people that get bullied get threats and they wont tell anyone. If bullying stops the world would be much better not only physically but online too such as cyber bullying which can also affect people. I care because it affects everyone and that is not ok.

  • I care because bullying is a bad way to hurt people physically and mentally and when I see someone get bullied, I go and ask a trusted
    teacher or adult.

  • I care about bullying because it's so painful for an outcast. They might be hurt forever because of trauma. But the bully doesn't think about their feelings, they just bullying for their satisfaction. Unfortunately, bullies can live well without feeling guilty. It is so awful. So we must be careful of bullying. Also, onlookers have to be careful of outcasts too! Onlooker's small behaviors are a big help to them.

  • I was being bullied about my sexuality and then I saw a PSA and it said something along the lines of "Standing up for yourself is ok if you do it in the right way, I then told an adult bc of it and I have no more problems with it! That PSA changed my life!

I was bullied by someone who I thought was my friend
Anonymous

I became quick friends with this girl in 6th grade. Her and I were very close friends. December of 6th grade I started getting mean notes and it turned out to be that friend. Then later in February of that school year she stole my ice cream gift card that I won in a raffle. After all of that I had to stop being friends with her. She bullied me even more after I stopped being friends with her. She sent me a mean email threatening me to my school email. She sent a mean email about me to one of my friends behind my back.
