GLSEN’s No Name-Calling Week, January 15-19, 2018, is a week organized by K-12 educators and students to end name-calling and bullying in schools.

Founded in 2004 with Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, and evaluated by GLSEN research, No Name-Calling Week was inspired by James Howe’s novel The Misfits about students who, after experiencing name-calling, run for student council on a No Name-Calling platform. The week is rooted in the idea of #KindessInAction — not merely recognizing the importance of kindness, but actively adding kindness into our every action. Will you join us in putting #KindnessInAction?

Join GLSEN Phoenix by taking the No Name-Calling Week pledge and commit to actively work against name-calling in 2018 (starting with No Name-Calling Week). Take the pledge today by registering and receive updates on kindness, a planning guide for activities and volunteer opportunities.
