October is Anti-Bullying Month!

Did you know that people with intellectual disabilities are two-thirds more likely to be bullied than their typically developing peers? This month is Anti-Bullying Month and Special Olympics is taking a stand! As an organization we believe in and promote inclusion. We have programs such as Project UNIFY, Special Olympics Unified Sports, Spread the Word to End the Word, and more, that share the resources and education needed to help create communities of inclusion throughout the world. Help us put a stop to bullying!
