Paula Goldberg has spent her life helping children with special needs through teaching and PACER, a nonprofit she co-founded. Then, in 2006 it became clear to her that the bullying in schools was out of control. She expanded her organization’s programs to include a center to help stop this terrible trend. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center provides resources (to kids, their families and schools) and lobbies the government for better laws. The organization shines a light on the problem while also offering support and a space for meaningful dialogue to end bullying and intolerance. Among other achievements, last year they directly assisted with 1,200 cases of bullying and had over 1.2 million visitors to their website.
