Pink Shirt Day

March 8, 2016

Pink Shirt Day, an annual anti-bullying event, took place all across Alberta Feb. 24. The event originated in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two high school students encouraged their classmates to wear pink as a show of support for a student at their school who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
