30 Seconds: AAPD’s Campaign to Stop Bullying
End bullying in our schools.
Over 85 percent of students with disabilities have experienced some form of bullying.
Bullying is more than kids being kids—it can make school a hostile place and prevent students from receiving the education that is their civil right.
This silent epidemic must be stopped.
Students are the most powerful argument against bullying. That’s why we encourage you to view and share AAPD’s public service announcement, “30 seconds.”
The PSA features three real students sharing a simple message: people with disabilities are powerful, self-determined individuals—not victims.
What can you do?
- Use the 30 Seconds Conversation Guide as a tool to start conversations about keeping schools safe and respectful places for all students regardless of disability. Share it with your family, friends, co-workers, schools, and congregations.
