Pink Shirt Day: February 24, 2021

Feb 22, 2021

Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues and looks to empower bystanders to call it out and intervene. 

“David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied [for wearing a pink shirt]…[They] took a stand against bullying” 

Every Year on February 24th we wear a pink shirt to continue the stand up against bullying 

Request your free Pink Shirt (and/or Mask!) and wear it proudly ANY day of the year:
