Pink Shirt Day

February 28nd 2018

 

Anti-bullying organizations and supports 

 

Anti-bullying Lesson Plans 

 

On Wednesday, February 28th, people across Canada will wear pink shirts to take a stand against bullying.

 

 


 

 

Pink Shirt Day started in Nova Scotia when two Grade 12 students witnessed a younger student being bullied for wearing pink. David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied…[They] took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts in their school

Now, wearing pink has become a symbol of strength across the world in creating awareness about the battle against bullying and for kindness.

 

Make Nice


Through our campaign this year, we encourage everyone to “Make Nice”. We all have the capacity to be kind and compassionate, and our slogan acts as a friendly reminder that no matter what our differences, being nice is always a choice worth making.

(from the b-free.ca website)

 

Bullying can take different forms, including:

  • Verbal: taunts, name-calling and put-downs, threats and intimidation
  • Social: exclusion from peer groups, ganging up, ridiculing, extortion or stealing of money and possessions
  • Physical: assault and sexual assault
  • Cyber: using the computer or other technology to harass or threaten

Bullying is repeated, and it needs to include some form of a power imbalance; It can happen anywhere, in the community, at school, in the park across the street from home, on a sports team or club. When bullying goes from bad to worse, it may lead to a feeling of terror on the part of the individual being bullied.

Whatever form bullying takes, it’s a myth that it’s ‘just something people have to go through.’

        Bullies may not think much of it, but giving someone a demoralizing nickname or teasing them relentlessly is abuse, even if it’s followed by “I was only kidding” or “can’t you take a joke?”

 

It’s not okay. It’s not normal.
