PINK SHIRT DAY RESOURCES
Pink Shirt Day is February 23, 2022. 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.
This year’s theme, #BeKindAB, encourages Albertans to be inclusive, welcoming and supportive with colleagues, clients, friends and family. Building healthy relationships is one of the best ways to prevent bullying and create safe environments.
Consider how you can take part in Pink Shirt Day. Here are a few ideas:
practice acts of kindness
discuss your role in bullying prevention with your friends, family or coworkers
learn where to turn for help, like Bullying – Find supports
