About Pink Shirt Day
Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when a student in Nova Scotia was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. It has since been recognized annually worldwide as a day to stand against bullying.
Each Pink Shirt Day, the County seeks to raise awareness of bullying prevention and highlight where to turn if in need of help. Getting involved is easy. Wear your pink shirt, take a photo and share it on social media with the #PinkShirtDay and #WhereToTurn hashtags.
