MAKE IT YOUR BUSINESS

If you see someone being bullied, you may think, "this isn't my business" and keep on going—especially if you don't know them. Don't! Instead, support them. Walk with them, talk with them, show them that they aren't alone. (However, don't intervene in a physical fight—call a teacher or other adult in charge to come stop it instead.)

BE A FRIEND

If you know that someone is being isolated, gossiped about, and made fun of, get to know them. Listen to them. Sit with them at lunch. Remember, bullies can't turn people into outcasts unless everyone else goes along with them. You can be the change.

MAKE KINDNESS GO VIRAL

When you see someone being cyberbullied, write something kind. And/or let the bullies know that what they're doing isn't cool.

GET YOUR SQUAD ON IT

Let your friends know what you're doing to help kids that are being bullied, so they can help, too. It's way easier to stand up to bullies when you have plenty of backup.
