Pink Shirt Day

Help end bullying, support PinkShirt day

On February 22, 2017, join Strathcona County by wearing a pink shirt in celebration of Pink Shirt Day’s message of kindness. Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 and is celebrated internationally as a day to promote bullying prevention and healthy relationships. On Pink Shirt Day and throughout the year, we encourage everyone to "Make Nice" and remember that no matter our differences, being nice, kind and compassionate is always a choice worth making 

If you see bullying, what should you do?

  • Don’t just watch or encourage bullying
  • Tell the person who is bullying to stop
  • Get help from a friend, a trusted adult, or colleague 
  • Support the person who is being targeted

How can you show your support on Pink Shirt Day?

  • By wearing a pink shirt, or anything pink for that matter
  • Take a photo of you and your friends and colleagues and post to social media: Twitter, Instagram or Facebook
  • Use the hash-tag #PinkShirtDay and #StandUp to spread awareness on social media
  • Check out the campaign and lend your support to various bullying prevention initiatives
