Speak to the person who’s being bullied. Ask him/her to come with you, and then walk away together. If you don’t feel comfortable speaking up, walk away. Do not give the bully an audience. Later, find the student who was bullied and offer your support. Report any bullying incident you see to a teacher, counselor, or trusted adult. When bullies feel their behavior is accepted by their peers, the bullying is likely to continue—or get worse. If you witness bullying, you have the opportunity to help someone, and to make a real difference in that person’s life. You also have an opportunity to help make your school a safer place for everyone. Students who witness bullying are bystanders. Students who witness bullying and take some action to discourage or stop it are upstanders. BYSTANDERS Bystanders, Upstanders, and Friends Hey, John, cut it out. C’mon, Kate. We need to get to class. If you witness bullying... I’m really sorry that happened to you. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” Martin Luther King, Jr. 6
