Michael J. Fox’s Challenge: Show You Care
Approach someone who’s been bullied or treated unfairly recently and let them know you’ve seen it, and don’t like it. You could tell them, “You didn’t deserve that” or “That was wrong.” Then share our graphic with #MonthOfAction to encourage others to show they care, too.
People who are marginalized or bullied often feel like they’re invisible. Experts say that if bystanders can’t help targets of bullying in the moment, they can help in easy, after-the-fact ways simply by asking them if they’re okay or sending a sympathetic text. Check out this video by Michael J. Fox about how going up to a person after they’ve been bullied can be a powerful way to show them someone’s on their side.
