See a Bully, Stop a Bully, Make a Difference

Bullying is a serious problem that affects kids and teens throughout the nation. It can happen anywhere: face-to-face, on the web or over the phone. As serious as this problem is, the good news is that we can join together to stop it.

Bullying awareness is an issue that AFT and our members feel strongly about. To show our commitment to anti-bullying, we are providing list of resources, including this Power Point presentation, that offers tools and information regarding bullying. The Alabama Federation of Teachers also has materials to help you spread the word that bullying is not ok.

About AFT Teachers

Throughout this century, the AFT has been a major force for preserving and strengthening America's democratic commitment to public education and public service. Desegregating public schools, passing the landmark Elementary and Secondary Education Act, establishing collective bargaining for teachers and other public employees, and addressing the needs of disadvantaged children are just a few of the causes the AFT has championed.
