Pink Shirt Day

February 22, 2023

Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 as a simple act of kindness, demonstrated by youth from a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada. Two teenage boys took a stand against classmates who were bullying another boy for wearing a pink shirt. They brought pink shirts for all of the boys in Grade 9 to wear on the same day, to show solidarity with the boy who had been bullied. The movement is now recognized globally in a show of solidarity, and to remind of the importance of standing up to bullying.

Pink Shirt Day is taking place on February 22, 2023. Through wearing pink on this day, we can show that EVERY DAY we stand in solidarity against bully, and that we choose to be kind. 

Together, we can all stand up to bullying. Wear a Pink Shirt and pledge to Choose Kind.
