National Safe Schools Day is October 5th

Take a stand for inclusive safe schools on October 5, 2011.

The annual National Safe Schools Day highlights students, teachers, schools and communities speaking out and taking action in building inclusive safe schools and spaces during Bullying Awareness Month in October.

Last year over 31 cities nationwide participated.

Organizations, k-12 schools, colleges and local communities took action on National Safe Schools Day with rallies, candle light vigils, student assemblies, classroom discussions, community service projects, letter writing campaigns, calling their Congressperson, conducting anti-bullying training’s, holding GSA events and by wearing the color purple or school colors in support of safe schools and anti-bullying.  No student should be subjected to bullying or harassment, whether based on actual or perceived race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or any other distinguishing characteristics. Bullying and harassment interfere with learning and can lead to violence in schools, poor school performance and absenteeism.

What will your school or local community do on October 5th to spread awareness and speakOUT for inclusive safe schools free from bullying and harassment?
