Pink Shirt Day in Support of Bullying Prevention

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day started in Canada in 2007, when two Nova Scotia high school students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, decided to take a stand against homophobic bullying after
a grade 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. David and Travis bough dozens of pink shirts and distributed them to their male classmates to wear the next day. The word got out online and hundreds
of students showed up in pink, some from head-to-toe, to stand together against bullying. Pink Shirt Day symbolizes and communicates unity, acceptance and compassion. On Wednesday, February 28th, Blessed Trinity participates in Pink Shirt Day. The day will be designated as a Blessed Trinity “Pink Shirt” civvies day. Staff and students are encouraged to wear a pink clothing item (i.e. shirt, t-shirt, sweatshirt, scarf, etc.) in their civvies day attire.
