Pink Shirt Day started in 2007 in Nova Scotia when youth distributed 50 pink shirts in their school in support of a peer who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
It is now a national movement that is recognized on the last Wednesday of February with a mission to “create a more kind, inclusive world by raising awareness, and funds for anti-bullying initiatives.”
Today, it is estimated that 1 in 5 youth experience some form of bullying, although more so in schools, workplaces, homes, and online.
Let's raise awareness, practice kindness, and stand against bullying. Lift each other up, and work towards ending bullying today and everyday.
