Every October Nevada PEP recognizes National Bullying Prevention Month with our signature Run Walk Roll Against Bullying. In keeping with the need to social distance, PEP has decided to adjust course and launch a new awareness campaign called “I Care, We Care” in partnership with Findlay Automotive Group.

Unity Day Proclamations

Nevada PEP is honored to have received three proclamations in honor of Unity Day. During this annual event, participants wear and share orange to show that we are together against bullying, and united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. We offer our sincere gratitude to the Clark County Commission, City of Henderson and Mayor Debra March, and the City of Reno and Mayor Hillary L. Schieve for recognizing the worthy cause of bullying prevention in the state of Nevada!

The submissions in this gallery come from people and organizations across the state who wanted to share their Care Message with the community. Click here to begin crafting your own Care Message!
