Albertans Stand up Against Bullying on Pink Shirt Day

 

pink shirt day AlbertaToday, Albertans will wear pink to show that bullying is unacceptable and to demonstrate the role we all play in stopping it.

Pink Shirt Day began when two young students wore pink to support a classmate who was being bullied. Since then, Pink Shirt Day has become a powerful movement, and is celebrated across Canada every year.

“Our government is proud to partner with schools and communities to support Pink Shirt Day. By wearing pink, Albertans are showing that we will not stand by; we will stand up against bullying and work together to make our communities safe, inclusive, and respectful for everyone.”

Rachel Notley, Premier
