What is Pink Shirt Day? outh and organizations continue to support Pink Shirt Day following the stand of two grade 12 Nova Scotia students in 2007. The students took action after witnessing a grade 9 student being bullied for wearing pink to school and encouraged their schoolmates to wear pink to send a message against bullying. Since then, wearing pink shirts has sent a powerful message against bullying. This year, Pink Shirt Day will be celebrated on Feb. 22, and hundreds of Calgarians are expected to turn schools and businesses into a sea of pink to build awareness against bullying.
Where can I buy a t-shirt?
