Remember, PINK Shirt Day is February 22nd, 2017.
PINK Shirt Day grew out of the need to address bullying in all of its forms – including homo/bi and transphobia within our communities – to get us thinking about the impacts of both intentional and casual bullying.
By participating in the day and wearing PINK -during our Open House at Notre Dame Campus – and on all our Campuses , you are showing your commitment to safe, bully free environment for all staff, students and faculty.
For more information on PINK Shirt Day check out their website;
Join tens of thousands across Canada as they embrace the POWER OF PINK
