Rumors. Vicious online comments. Pushing, shoving, name-calling.

For 1 out of 5 children in America—especially LGBTQ+, ethnically diverse, and differently abled  kids—these things are as commonplace as math tests and soccer practice. Worse still, bullied kids are almost 3 times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers.

And while bullying affects students in significantly high numbers, working adults can face it too, with nearly 1 in 4 saying they’ve experienced or are currently experiencing bullying at work.

Thankfully, due to the efforts of dozens of nonprofits, we’re learning what really stops bullies. Research-backed interventions—like providing easy-to-access support for young people, or providing bullying-prevention programs in schools—have shown to decrease instances of bullying by up to 25%.

But together, we can do even better.

Get to know these 11 anti-bullying nonprofits, and help save lives by donating to your favorites.
