As part of the AFT’s effort to combat bullying, we created blue wristbands and posters featuring our new campaign slogan, “See a Bully – Stop a Bully,” which we will be distributing widely in schools across the country.
Hang these colorful posters in your school or classroom to raise bullying awareness. There are two versions of the poster available, for elementary and secondary grade levels, that ask the questions: Do you know what bullying looks like? Do you know what to do if you see a classmate being bullied? and Do you know what to do if you are being bullied?
Posters are free for affiliates and $1 each for non-members. To order, send your request to the AFT Order Department, 555 New Jersey Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20001. Checks should be made payable to the American Federation of Teachers. Please specify grade level and quantity.
When students see their teachers or anyone wearing the blue wristband, it will serve as a signal to students that they are not alone, that school is a safe haven, and that they can turn to and depend on their educators to deal with bullying or harassment.
Wristbands are free for affilates, $1 each for non-members, or $15 per set of 25. To order, send your request to the AFT Order Department, 555 New Jersey Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20001. Checks should be made payable to the American Federation of Teachers.
