April 13, 2016—Wednesday April 13, 2016 is the 8th Annual Pink Shirt Day at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. Hashtag #leadwithlove can be used to spread the word.
Pink Shirt Day demonstrates our shared belief in the power of celebrating diversity, acceptance and inclusion.
By wearing pink, we also acknowledge and offer support for the ongoing efforts to increase awareness of bullying prevention initiatives, the work of school teams, and the role-modeling provided by all student leaders in our schools.
Anyone wearing pink is encouraged to take pictures of themselves in pink T-shirts they have decorated, modified, or accessorized to “lead with love” and post the picture to Twitter and/or Instagram. The message is that, no matter how different our shirts might look individually, we are all included in the community of pink shirt-wearers.
