Day of Pink - April 12

February 8, 2017


 What is the Day of Pink?

The Day of Pink is the day to take action on Bullying, Homophobia and Transphobia. As in previous years, members and their students have voluntarily participated in this day.

The Day of Pink was started in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two Grade 12 students saw a Grade 9 student being bullied on the first day of school for wearing a pink shirt. Bullies harassed the boy, called him a homosexual and threatened to beat him up. The two Grade 12 students - David Shepherd and Travis Price bought and distributed 50 pink shirts and encouraged peers to arrive to school wearing pink. The result was that the school took a stand and began working together to prevent homophobic bullying.

The Day of Pink t-shirts are available >

Final day to order the Day of Pink t-shirts is Friday, March 17, 2017.
