Spread kindness – No Name-Calling week is January 20 to 24

January 16, 2020

GUELPH, Ontario – No Name-Calling Week is January 20 – 24 this year. The week is organized by educators and students with the goal of ending name-calling and bullying in schools.

This initiative was founded in 2004 and was inspired by James Howe’s novel The Misfits. This book is about students who, after experiencing name-calling, run for student council on a No Name-Calling platform.

The week is rooted in the idea of #KindnessInAction by recognizing the importance of kindness, while actively adding kindness in to everyday actions.

During No Name-Calling Week, let’s end slurs and stereotypes and continue to spread kindness in our hallways and communities. 

Here is a list of some of the activities that you can do during the week:
