Successful strategies to reduce bullying
About one out of every six high school students report being bullied, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That number goes up significantly — as much as 40% — for LGBTQ2S students. The death of non-binary Oklahoma teen Nex Benedict, ruled a suicide, is sparking widespread conversations about the consequences of bullying. The federal Government Accounting Office found in 2021 that racist bullying is also on the rise.

Join Native America Calling to discuss strategies that are showing promise for combatting bullying.
