Pink Shirt Day, a movement that is celebrated across the globe, serves as a reminder that even our smallest actions can lead to significant positive change.
This world-wide awareness day originates as a result of two high school students taking a stand against bullying in their school in Berwick, Nova Scotia, in 2007. After seeing a grade 9 boy being bullied for his pink shirt, David Shepherd and Travis Price, along with many other students, donned their pink shirts in support of the victim of the bullying. That simple but powerful act of kindness ignited a spark in youth around the world and has subsequently led to an influential anti-bullying movement.
This year, Pink Shirt Day, or Anti-Bullying Day, is on February 24th. It is a day when people come together by wearing pink shirts to school or work to show they are against bullying. The focus for 2021 is "Spread Kindness." More information and resources for cyberbullying can be found by clicking HERE.
