Day of Pink 276
Day of Pink

York Region schools will be a sea of pink on April 10, 2019!

Students and staff will recognize the International Day of Pink by wearing pink and taking part in activities that promote anti-bullying. They will join communities across the country in celebrating diversity, working toward equity and inclusivity by raising awareness about homophobic, transphobic and other forms of bullying.

The International Day of Pink began in Nova Scotia when two high school students witnessed a gay student being bullied because he was wearing a pink shirt. The two students intervened but wanted to do more to prevent homophobic & transphobic bullying. They purchased pink shirts and encouraged their peers to show their solidarity by wearing pink to school. The result was that an entire school joined together to take a stand.

Join YRDSB students in their efforts to prevent bullying.  Show your commitment to equity and inclusivity and support for diversity and antibullying by wearing pink on April 10!
