Pink Shirt Day is February 24, 2021. Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when a student in Nova Scotia was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. It has since been recognized annually worldwide as a day to stand against bullying.
This year, we are working to raise awareness of bullying prevention and highlight where to turn if in need of help. Getting involved is easy. Wear your pink shirt, take a photo and share it on social media with the #PinkShirtDay and #WhereToTurn hashtags.
Consider how you can take part in Pink Shirt Day. Here are a few ideas:
share Pink Shirt Day resources on social media
Check out Two Hills F.C.S.S. Facebook Page for local events
discuss your role in bullying prevention with your friends, family or coworkers
learn where to turn for help – Find supports
write a letter or email to the editor of your local newspaper or radio station about the importance of promoting healthy relationships
