October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Founded in 2006 by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, this campaign aims to raise awareness of an ever-present issue. Bullying is a problem that afflicts every community across the country. Since the emergence of social media, it has grown exponentially in the cyber world. As such, it is important to bring awareness to this issue and learn how to identify cyber bullying and how to fight against it.
