February 23 is Pink Shirt Day, when we can all take a stand against bullying. We too often see communities, workplaces, and families being divided. Through these divides, some have permitted, and even encouraged, bullying behaviours in the name of their cause.
This is harmful, and no matter the reason, we should never harm each other. Tomorrow, lets all wear pink t-shirts and send a unified message that we are standing up against any form of bullying.
Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when a student in Nova Scotia was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. It has since been recognized annually worldwide as a day to stand against bullying.
For Pink Shirt Day 2022, we are calling on Unifor members to wear pink, post on social media and send photos of themselves wearing pink shirts to support anti-bullying.
I'm wearing pink on #PinkShirtDay to stand up to bullies. Today and every day, @UniforTheUnion stands against bullying.
