No Bully is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring innovative, sustainable solutions to bullying, harassment and violence in schools. We envision schools where kindness triumphs over prejudice and intolerance. It began in San Francisco in 2003 as a collaboration of educators, psychologists and lawyers committed to preventing the current generation of students from enduring the bullying that they experienced when they were in school. Today, No Bully is helping schools in California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and beyond stop bullying and transform into learning communities which are inclusive of everybody.
