Think Pink - End Bullying

Everyone has a role in promoting healthy relationships and preventing bullying - in our schools, communities and workplaces.

Pink Shirt Day is Wednesday, February 25. This is a national anti-bullying day, inspired by two Nova Scotia youth who rallied fellow students and teachers at their high school to wear pink in support of a younger student who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to class earlier in the week.

Show Your Support! 

On February 25, school administrators, teachers and students can show their support for welcoming, caring, respectful, safe and inclusive school communities by:

  • Wearing a pink shirt.
  • Tweeting a photo of themselves using #AlbertaPink.

Information and support are available by calling the Bullying Helpline at 1-888-456-2323.

We also encourage discussion and display of the Pink Shirt Day infographic.
