Our Mission

To eliminate bullying from the American workplace through research, education, conversation, and legislation.


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes that “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.” We're committed to ensuring that all workers are guaranteed these human rights in the workplace. Every worker should have a right to:


Workers should have a right to a workplace free of verbal abuse, threats, sabotage, and abuse of any kind.

Be Respected

Workers should have a right to dignity and have our human needs and individual strengths and weaknesses honored.

Fair Treatment

Workers should have a right to reasonable expectations and similar standards for our colleagues.

A Living Wage

Workers should be paid a wage that will allow them to thrive and prosper.

A Healthy Life In and Outside of Work

Workers should have a right to feel strong. We should have a right to work in environments that promote well-being, including a right to healthy retirement. 


Workers should have a right to have power and control over our work for confidence and strength.

A Sense of Belonging

Workers should have a right to feel like we are included in an organization and part of a team.

Self-Governance and Control over Their Work

Workers should have a right to information and resources necessary to do our jobs well so we can feel productive.

A Greater Purpose

Workers should have a right to play a meaningful role in the reason our organizations exists.

Feel Valued

Workers should have a right to feel like our contributions have worth and importance.


Workers should have a right to feel heard and receive appropriate responses when we voice concerns.

Growth and Self-Actualization

Workers should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and the opportunity to flourish within the organization in roles that fit their talents and goals.
