National Bullying Prevention Month is a campaign in the United States founded in 2006 by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. The campaign is held during the month of October and unites communities nationwide to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. Here at Fifty Shades of Purple Against Bullying we're spotlighting and celebrating acts of kindness and individuals who have demonstrated unwavering dedication to making life better for others.

This year's Bullying Prevention Month honoree is Jennifer Ozgur!

Jennifer Ozgur is in her 19th year of teaching English to middle and high schoolers. In the 2016-17 school year, she took a professional sabbatical to work on a variety of projects dedicated to proactive mental health strategies that support student success.
Since then, Jennifer has become trained and certified in trauma-informed and brain-based programing and has developed workshops that help parents raised emotionally intelligent and empowered children.

As a trauma and bullying survivor herself – and since many school-age bullies are victims at home – it is Jennifer’s mission to educate families in parenting choices that end toxicity and prevent bullying. You can follow Jennifer on Facebook @JenFormation
