Students Involved in Bullying

Advocates for Children of New York works with students who are targeted by or involved in bullying, with a focus on students with disabilities and LGBTQ and gender nonconforming youth. LGBTQ students and students with disabilities are more likely to be bullied and also have higher rates of school suspension, in part because of behaviors that are a response to harassment, an unsupportive school climate, or unmet special education needs.
