February 23rd is Pink Shirt Day.

In 2007, two high school students in Nova Scotia organized the first Pink Shirt Day at their school, after learning that a grade 9 student was being harassed and threatened with homophobic slurs for wearing pink. Since then, the movement has grown into a global one.

Each year people around the world participate in campaigns and initiatives aimed at taking a stand against bullying. Wearing your pink shirt on Pink Shirt Day is a way to show the world that bullying is not acceptable anywhere – not in our schools, not at our workplaces, not on our sport teams, not in our homes and not online.

On February 23rd, members and staff at Richmond RCMP will be donning our own pink shirts, and we ask you to join us.

Together we can take a stand against bullying in our community.
