What is Pink Shirt Day?
In 2007, two high school students from the small community of Cambridge in Nova Scotia witnessed a Grade 9 boy being bullied for wearing a pink polo shirt. Bullies harassed the boy, for wearing pink and threatened to beat him up. The next day hundreds of students showed up wearing pink clothes to take a stand against the bullies. It was this story that inspired the movement Pink Shirt Day.
Bullying is a major issue at local schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. The Waterloo Region Record recognizes the problem and is encouraging the community to come together and help each other grow. Purchase your shirt to make a stand against bullying in Waterloo Region.
