We need a president who will be in our corner, not one who will put us in a corner. Watch and share the video now!, download the resources, and stand with us on Nov. 8.

The consequences of Trump's actions will last far beyond Nov. 8. That's why we're continuing our important work to provide educators and parents with resources and tools to stop bullying, and to support kids who have been bullied. Check out our Share My Lesson resource kit on bullying!

This is just one more issue where the choice in November couldn't be clearer.

Just last week, Hillary Clinton released her comprehensive anti-bullying plan, "Better than Bullying." It includes support for professional development for educators and other school employees and recognizes the important role of school counselors and wraparound services. It also rightly acknowledges both the need to prioritize school climate as part of implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act, and the importance of bullying prevention in creating and maintaining positive and constructive school climates.

I'm proud of the AFT's longstanding work on bullying prevention. From our "See a Bully, Stop a Bully" campaign, to our ever-expanding bullying prevention resource hub on Share My Lesson, to our time-tested professional development programs, to working with groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League and Not In Our School, the AFT is committed to combating bullying in schools.


In unity,
Randi Weingarten
