Bullying - STAND UP -STAND STRONG - SPEAK OUT!

Bullying - STAND UP - STAND STRONG - SPEAK OUT!

Bullying is a major problem for children and teenagers. Acts of violence and persecution can happen at school, work, and even in your home. The more we ignore the signs and symptoms the worse it becomes for the youth of our generation.

According to the website www.stopbullying.gov bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

We at NIMCO believe that the first step to changing unwanted aggressive behavior is to talk about the subject and make parents, teachers, administrators, and most important students aware of the problem. In 2013, our company developed a new slogan and product line called "Bullying - STAND UP! STAND STRONG! SPEAK OUT! Our goal was to give students and teachers material they could use and wear that proudly displayed the slogan.



Our hope is that these promotional items can help remind students to take a stand against bullying in a positive way. We also hope that the slogan will be a visual cue to those who think about bullying to change their ways before they hurt someone or worse...themselves.
