“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

Ways you can #UnfollowBullying
  • Draw a Line – Delete negative or hateful comments rather than giving the bully an audience.
  • Speak Up – If you know the person doing the cyberbullying, and feel comfortable, talk to him/her. Help them to understand the harm they are doing.  Or if you are being cyberbullied, find someone you trust to confide in. Speak up for yourself and for others; don’t let fear silence you.
  • Consider Others – When online, ask yourself are you sending something you would say face-to-face? If not, don’t send it.
  • Take the Student Pledge – Help transform the #UnfollowBullying campaign at your site from a vision to a reality by taking the pledge.
