Pink Shirt Day History

Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of bullying by wearing a pink shirt. David Shepherd and Travis Price were credited with originating the observance. It began as a gesture of sympathy when they witnessed a 9th grade boy being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. As a way of protesting, David and Travis began distributing pink t-shirts to all the boys in their school in Berwick, Nova Scotia. According to Canadian Institutes of Health Research, about 1 in 3 students in Canada have reported being bullied.
