HDS Companies recently came together for National Unity Day 2020 and wore orange to promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion in our world. By doing this, employees took a stand that no child should ever experience bullying. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center started Unity Day, October 2011 as a signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month. On this day, people all over the country would wear orange or display orange to raise awareness against bullying.
In 2006, PACER’s National Bullying Prevent Center partnered with a variety of national parent organizations, schools, parents, and students which have provided an abundance of resources to help bring awareness to how bullying has become widespread among children 8-17 years old. According to 10 studies across the United States, children with disabilities were two to three times more likely to be bullied than their nondisabled peers because they may find it hard to “read” social signs.
