Take a Stand

Take a Stand

Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, and 64% of youth who are bullied do not report the incidents. The percentage of individuals who have experienced cyberbullying has doubled over the past few years, and 74% of LGBTQ students admit being bullied because of their sexual orientation. More than half of bullying situations (57%) stop when a peer intervenes on behalf of the student being bullied, yet bystanders of bullying tend to succumb to what they believe is peer pressure to support bullying behavior and fear of becoming the victim.

On Wednesday, October 25, Bulldogs GIVE Back (BGB) students hosted a Day of Unity at Holmes High School and shared why everyone should be UNITED for KINDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, and INCLUSION. Students and staff took a stand against bullying with a school-wide BLUE OUT and PINKY PLEDGE. They wore blue to school, accepted the pinky pledge during lunch by painting their pinky nails blue, and shared why they take a STAND against bullying. Help BGB spread the word of UNITY. Don’t be a bystander—take a stand.
