Anti-Bullying Day is a day when people wear a pink shirt to symbolise a stand against bullying, an idea that originated in Canada. It is celebrated on various dates around the world. Next Pink Shirt Day is Feb 24, 2021.
Pink Shirt Day is a collective, eye-catching action where people across Canada wear pink shirts to express their commitment to anti-bullying. Indigenous Pink Shirt Day is the same, encouraging an intentional awareness to where racism and bullying meet. Tomorrow some Pacific Mountain staff members will be wearing the Indigenous Pink Shirt by artist Chantelle Trainor-Matties (in the photo below). How are you marking Pink Shirt Day in your area? Start a chat in our Community Forum (click), and share your own pink shirt pics in the forum and on social media!

One of the key factors behind bullying behavior can be linked to familial and community interrelations. Everyone is invited to join us in a joint Chinook Winds & Pacific Mountain regions online session to discuss intergenerational trauma and lateral violence in community and in the urban environment.
