About Pink Shirt Day
Pink Shirt Day is an annual celebration that encourages people to wear a pink shirt as a way to take a stand against bullying, while fostering compassion and raising awareness. Now a movement celebrated across the globe, Pink Shirt Day was inspired by an act of kindness in Nova Scotia: in 2007, David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a 9th grade student named Charles McNeill was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on his first day of school. Today, Pink Shirt Day is all about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity, creating communities of respect and promoting positive social relationships. There are numerous benefits to creating a civil and respectful workplace. Practicing small, everyday acts of civility and kindness can go a long way to help everyone feel safe, comfortable, and respected. Pink Shirt Day 2023 takes place on February 22, 2023.
