WHAT YOU CAN DO IF YOU ARE BULLIED OR ATTACKED

  • Document what happened. If you can do it safely, take photos or record video/audio coverage. No matter what, write down what happened, where it happened, and when it happened. Do it while it is fresh in your mind.

  • Get the names and contact info for any witnesses.

  • Report it. Share what happened with at least one person or organization you feel comfortable with. 

  • File a complaint with the ACLU of Idaho.  ACLU of Idaho monitors civil rights violations throughout the state. Sometimes they can help with referrals or other aid. 

  • If you are in a public school, file a formal grievance. Look on your school district or college website for grievance and civil rights policies. Follow the procedure to make sure your grievance is complete and on time.

  • You can also file a grievance if you are in prison, jail, or a state hospital. Ask staff for the grievance procedure and follow it.

  • Your workplace or private school may have a grievance policy, too.

  • If you are bullied or attacked by your partner or a family member, you can call the Idaho Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-669-3176 or the Idaho Legal Aid hotline at 1-877-500-2980.
