  • Providing a platform to hold school and community events
  • Sharing information about the issue through news media, social media, videos and print publications
  • Talking with education and public policy leaders about their roles in bullying prevention
  • Promoting dialogue between educators, parents and students on their roles in addressing and preventing bullying
  • Encouraging organizations to share information about their bullying prevention resources
  • Inspiring everyone to unite for kindness, acceptance and inclusion
  • Helping to create a world without bullying
