Pink Shirt Day 2014

See also

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014 is the Seventh Annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day.

Bullying is an epidemic everywhere, from schools to workplaces to playing fields to cyberspace -- no one is immune from being abused by a bully.

This movement was started when a young student, a boy in the 9th grade, wore a pink shirt to school and was teased and bullied non-stop for it.

A group of teens organized a protest in defense of this young man and started Pink Shirt Day. They all wore pink shirts in solidarity in support of this student. They stood up and made a difference.

As you know, bullying and the prevention of it has become a major focus in our schools today. Bullies are no longer limited to just verbal or physical bullying. Text and online bullying have become a serious problem among adolescents and teens. According to School bullying statistics in the United States:

· About one in four kids in the U.S. are bullied on a regular basis.
· Almost 9 out of 10 teens have a cell phone, and about 1 in 5 will be victims of a text bully. Text bullying has become more common than traditional bullying, especially among girls.
· More than half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online.
· More than 25 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet.

Let's get our pink shirts ready for Wednesday. No matter where you live, you can make a statement!
