International Stand Up to Bullying Day

Today is International Stand Up to Bullying Day. It is a special semi-annual event in which participants sign and wear a pink “pledge shirt” to take a visible, public stance against bullying. The color of the shirts is based on a campaign started by Travis Price and David Shepherd, two students who took a stand for a fellow student who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The event takes place in schools, workplaces, and organizations in 25 countries around the globe on the third Friday of November to coincide with anti-bullying week, and then again on the last Friday of February. Please reblog to spread the word. Thank you.
