Bullying? That’s So Not Okay! Join The Movement That’s Sweeping Across The Country

Bestselling Author Releases Highly Anticipated First Book In Debut Anti-Bullying Series And Encourages Kids, Parents and Teachers To Take Action

SoNotOkay

One out of every four students is bullied – 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Bestselling author Nancy Rue recently released So Not Okay, a fiction book for tweens that addresses bullying from the perspective of the bystander. The first book in the Mean Girl Trilogy, So Not Okay teaches invaluable lessons about self-worth and the beauty of true friendship. Rue is now asking kids, parents and teachers to take a stand against bullying and join the #SoNotOkay movement!

“This movement is about solving the problem of bullying from the inside out,” Nancy said, “and that’s going to take all of us coming together!”

Visit www.nancyrue.com/sonotokay to join the movement, then get to work by checking these off your list:

  • Use the #SoNotOkay hashtag to promote their stance against mean girls
  • Change their profile pictures to one of the images we have created on social media (FB, Twitter etc)
  • Post one of the So Not Okay memes on Instagram or a selfie of them holding their pledge card!
  • Sign one of the So Not Okay commitment cards with friends or your youth group
  • Print and sign the Code for Respecting the Dignity of Every Human Being, just like the girls in the book
  • Print and carry tribelet cards & share them with their friends
  • Download the So Not Okay phone screen wallpapers & share them with their friends
  • Get your own So Not Okay stickers for those who join the movement (while supplies last)
