Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink.
Kindness = Respectful words, tone matters, treat others the way you would like to be treated
We understand that negative talk and rumours either face-to-face and online is an example of bullying that can cross many boundaries, and cause harm. It is not just outright unkind acts alone that is considered bullying. In our everyday interactions, we can practice speaking kind words, being respectful, and acting in kind ways. Demonstration goes a long way!
Today, Argus team members remind ourselves and each other of the importance of this message, and have worn pink in support of anti-bullying.
