No Name-Calling Week (NNCW), January 22-26, 2007, is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying in their communities.

Inspired by a young adult novel entitled "The Misfits" by author, James Howe, the No Name-Calling Week Coalition was created by Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, and consists of over 40 national partner organizations. GLSEN first organized the No Name-Calling Week in schools across the nation during 2004.

No Name-Calling Week 2007 is made possible, in large part, by a generous grant from Cisco Systems.
