YouthLink Participates in Shaw #PinkShirtPromise Campaign

YouthLink is proud to participate and support the Shaw #PinkShirtPromise campaign running from Feb. 9 – 24th, 2016.

Pink Shirt Day has its roots in Nova Scotia when two remarkable high school students decided to take action against bullying. Today, Pink Shirt Day has become a movement for social change where Canadians come together to show their solidarity against bullying.

This morning, YouthLink’s Executive Director, Tara Robinson spoke at the Shaw #pinkshirtpromise event at the CrossIron Mills mall, unveiling their new “pink” wall. YouthLink was proud to bring along nearly 200 pink post-it promise notes to help get the wall started. Bo Levi Mitchell was on hand to help us put those up on the wall.

YouthLink will be including the #pinkshirtpromise in their Grade 6 programming about bullying from now until February 24, 2016.

Pink Shirt Day is officially Wednesday, February 24, 2016.
