Message from Jerry Dias, Unifor National
Let’s End Bullying
Join with us tomorrow to unite against homophobia and bullying in your workplace and community.
Take action on Wednesday, February 28.
Wear a pink shirt on February 28. By wearing your pink shirt, and sharing that image online, you can help to show that the union is speaking out against homophobic bullying and harassment. By participating in Pink Shirt Day this year, we ask that you make the promise to stand for kindness every single day.
Share your pictures and messages of support for LGBTQ workers and students with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or online, on Facebook or Twitter, and we will share them with the wider Unifor family. Don’t have a pink shirt? Use this shareable or take a photo with this poster.
What is Pink Shirt Day?
Unifor recognizes Pink Shirt Day to support the trailblazing work of youth who took collective action against bullying. Pink Shirt Day began in Berwick, Nova Scotia in 2007 when David Shepherd, Travis Price and a large group of students decided to defend their peer who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. In a show of solidarity, they, and many students turned up to school the next day wearing pink shirts.
