February 22 is Pink Shirt Day. People across Canada and around the world will wear pink. It’s an international day to raise awareness about bullying and the importance of kindness, diversity, inclusion, and acceptance.
One in three Canadian teens admits that they’ve been bullied recently. You’ve probably seen it happen. Did you go along with it or pretend you didn’t see it? Or did you do something about it?
The first Pink Shirt Day
Pink Shirt Day began 16 years ago, when two Grade 12 students took a stand against bullying at their Nova Scotia high school.
