February 26th, 2014 is Pink Shirt Day!

This February, 26th, 2014, wear pink to draw attention to the importance of supportive relationships! Remind others about the story behind Pink Shirt Day to inspire others to become courageous in the face of injustice. Reflect on the actions that two brave Nova Scotia students took in protest against the harassment that was happening to a grade 9 boy because he was wearing a pink shirt to school. Since handing out pink t-shirts to all the boys in their school in 2007, Pink Shirt Day has been observed every year in February and now observed worldwide.
