On February 24, individuals and organizations across the country will come together to celebrate Pink Shirt Day, an annual anti-bullying campaign.
Bullying is a form of aggression where there is a power imbalance; the person doing the bullying has power over the person being victimized. In additional to any physical trauma incurred, bullying can result in mental health issues, including anxiety, low self-esteem, or depression.
Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. This year’s theme for Pink Shirt Day is “Lift each other up”; a simple but powerful message encouraging the celebration of the things that make us unique.
