Connect for Respect—Bullying
Connect for Respect is National PTA's initiative to encourage PTAs across the country to lead conversations in their school communities about bullying, how it is affecting their communities, and to develop solutions that they can implement collaboratively together.
Parents and caring adults play pivotal roles in creating a healthy school and community climate that is free of bullying. PTA leaders and parents are key players in building awareness in the community and taking action to stop bullying in your communities.
