No Name Calling Week

No Name Calling Week is fast approaching: January 24 – 28. (Which isn’t really a full week, is it? The project is aimed at schools, so it’s a school-week long. But I think the weekend would be a useful addition. Just sayin’.)

What is No Name Calling Week? I thought you’d never ask!

No Name-Calling Week is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities.

The idea came from James Howe‘s wonderful book, THE MISFITS, and has grown into a national movement. The NNCW website is loaded with ideas and resources for schools and families. Go look!!

To support this effort, a bunch of authors (including moi) have made anti-bullying videos.

Would you please help spread the word? Thank you!

  1. Nice usage of images. Did you just turn CWF into a bully? 🙂

    I love the idea behind No Name Calling week. Hopefully it can expand to include musicians, atheletes and other celebrities to help increase the appeal/audience.

  2. This is such an inspirational idea – I do voluntary work twice a week at my primary school so shall definitely give it a mention in assembly. Thank you for sharing this!
