Don’t be a “by-stander”, STAND UP against bullying!

The disABILITY Resource Center takes a strong stand against bullying toward children and adults no matter one’s ethnicity, disability, religion, race, economic status, age, gender, culture, nationality, etc. We strongly promote inclusion; proclaiming that there are no “less than” people. We value one’s worth, individuality and dignity.

Children from diverse minority groups experience bullying at a much higher rate than other children. Bullying occurs in school cafeterias, classrooms, hallways, restrooms, playgrounds, on the bus, etc. It is not to be considered a “growing/maturing experience” for our children. Bullying causes low self-worth, depression, social anxiety and even suicide. It is not to be taken lightly!

“If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.” Taylor Swift

Types of Bullying:

 “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Eleanor Roosevelt

“One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but it can never be taken away unless it is surrendered.” Michael J. Fox
