Pink Shirt Day
Today is Pink Shirt Day, a day created to counter bullying and raise awareness.
According to the organization’s website, this year’s theme is “lift each other up.”
The day originated in a small Nova Scotia town back in 2007, when high schoolers began wearing pink shirts as a sign of solidarity with a student who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school.
Since then, the anti-bullying campaign has garnered global attention and is celebrated around the world.
