No Bully

Having been bullied relentlessly as a teenager, No Bully Founder, Nicholas Carlisle, wanted to ensure that other children did not have to endure the same abuse that he experienced in his formative years. So in 2003, Carlisle established No Bully, which began as a collaborative team of educators, psychologists, and lawyers committed to building a kinder and more compassionate world as a means of ending the crisis of bullying in schools and online. Over the last decade, they have become the nation’s preeminent anti-bullying organization.
