Created April 8, 2019

In 1999, the United States launched a critical conversation about the need to prevent bullying. As we mark 20 years since this conversation began, its important to reflect on just how far we have come but also recognize how far we have to go. In recent years, we have seen significant reductions in the number of students reporting being bullied and increased attention to the issue from schools, policymakers, and celebrities.

But, it isn't all good news. These gains are under threat: in the last two years, principals and other stakeholders are reporting increases in hate speech and bullying in their hallways. Policymakers are looking to pass new legislation that enact criminal penalties for bullying behavior, despite evidence suggesting such efforts may further harm youth. 

Schools, policymakers, and others need a trusted resource to help translate the evidence base, connect with researchers, and promote best practice to effectively prevent and intervene in bullying. The International Bullying Prevention Association uniquely plays that role. Your donation helps support on-going efforts to disseminate research through the newly-launched International Journal on Bullying Prevention and through our annual conference, supports IBPA's ability to provide guidance and education around proposals and practices that may jeopardize the progress made on bullying in the last 20 years. 

You can help IBPA by making a donation today and by helping to share your reflections on the last 20 years of bullying prevention using #Bullying20YearsLater.
