This PSA from The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) shows students speaking out against bullying. Take 30 seconds, watch it, and share widely. School should be a safe place and current statistics show that over 85 percent of students with disabilities have experienced some form of bullying. If you are being bullied or see someone being bullied,let someone know. Together we can change the culture of oppression and fear that prevents us from speaking out when it happens to us, our classmates and even our students.
Bullying is more than kids being kids—it can make school a hostile place and prevent students from receiving the education that is their civil right.
This silent epidemic must be stopped. Now.
