February 26th is Pink Shirt Day!
In 2007, high school students organized a protest to wear pink after a Grade 9 boy was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. They took a stand against bullying by distributing pink t-shirts to kids in their school.
Since then Pink Shirt Day has been acknowledged all over the world, as people stand up against bullying. The staff at the North Durham Family Health Team wore their pink shirts today.
