I Care, We Care 2020
In 2020 Nevada PEP, in partnership with #SafeAllies, launched a new awareness campaign called “I Care, We Care” in partnership with Findlay Automotive Group to recognize National Bullying Prevention Month in October.
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!
