The National Bullying Prevention Center sponsors bully prevention month in October… with Unity Day on October 9th. Bullying really constitutes the opposite of civility — bullying reduces participation in our civic spaces, targets individuals (often for intrinsic characteristics rather than behaviors) and diminishes the integrity of bystanders. Bullying undermines community for all of us. The Choose Civility Initiative hopes to amplify the voices, strategies and resources available to all of us to counter bullying with active efforts to create and sustain welcoming civic spaces. To that end, please see our ongoing programs and check out some of the following resources!
