October: National Bullying Prevention Month + New Video! | Not in Our Town

October: National Bullying Prevention Month + New Video!

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. NIOS is joining organizations across the country that are taking a stand against bullying.

Not In Our School is kicking off National Bullying Prevention Month with a powerful anti-bullying public service announcement, “Break Bullying” (above) donated to Not In Our Town by MAKE, a professional ad agency. 

The PSA depicts adults in an office environment re-enacting the director’s personal bullying experience from middle school. His point: If we would not stand for this in the office, why do we stand for it happening to kids in schools? It is a call to action for everyone to take bullying seriously. 

Students and teachers alike are reporting visceral responses to the PSA. You will hear a few bleeps—but those bleeps, unedited, are what kids experience daily in their schools. 

Join the thousands who are taking action during bullying prevention month. 

Post this video on your Facebook page, share the link with your friends, speak up and stand up to bullying in your community.
