Pink Shirt Day

Our Work / Pink Shirt Day

On Friday 26 May, 2017 we're asking New Zealanders to celebrate Pink Shirt Day and stand together to take action against bullying.

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, mobilising their whole school, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.

Pink Shirt Day aims to create schools, workplaces and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected.

Will you stand with us to stop bullying on Friday, 26 May?

For more information visit the Pink Shirt Day website or email: pinkshirtday@mentalhealth.org.nz

Pink Shirt Day is led by the Mental Health Foundation, with support from: The Peace Foundation, RainbowYOUTH, InsideOUT, New Zealand Post Primary Teachers’ Association, Youthline and Family Works.
