3. Take Action

Watch Nakita's video about how you can help stop bullying.


Questions

1. Can you remember a time you saw someone getting bullied? Did you step in? Why or why not?

2. What do you think someone could do if they are being bullied in person? How about online?

3. Make a list of people you could go to if you’re struggling.

4. Nakita says, “If I can do a project, you guys can too.” What might you be able to do in your school or community to reduce bullying? Brainstorm in your group.
