Ongoing Campaigns

AFT’s ‘See a Bully, Stop a Bully: Make a Difference’ Campaign
This campaign is aimed at raising awareness and providing resources and training to educators, students, parents and others. The AFT will be bolstering the educator training it has provided for years to combat bullying in schools, and will work with others to ensure that schools are safe environments for students and staff. As part of the AFT’s effort to combat bullying, we created blue wristbands and posters featuring our new campaign slogan, which we will be distributing widely in schools across the country. The AFT also has established an online collection of resources, downloadable materials and links to partner organizations on our website, and we will host a series of webinar trainings and regional conferences on bullying in the upcoming months.
