Title Pink Shirt Day
Start Time 2/28/2024 12:00 AM
End Time 2/28/2024 11:59 PM

Commemorated on the last Wednesday of February each year, Pink Shirt Day is an international anti-bullying movement observed throughout British Columbia, across Canada and around the world.

Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness about the harmful effects of bullying and promote kindness, empathy, and inclusion. It also serves as a reminder to individuals and communities to take a stance against bullying, promote positive social interactions, and foster a culture of acceptance and understanding. Participants are encouraged to wear pink shirts as a visible symbol of their commitment to creating a more compassionate and respectful environment, free from bullying.

Since its inception in 2008, net proceeds of over $2.55 million have been distributed to support youth anti-bullying programs in B.C. and throughout Western Canada.

The 16th annual Pink Shirt Day is being held later this month on Wednesday, February 28. Visit the Pink Shirt Day website for more information and to participate.​
