Today is... International Day of Pink

The International Day of Pink is a Canadian anti-bullying event held annually during the second Wednesday of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied in their Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia, and deciding to show support for the student by getting everyone at their school to wear pink the following day.

The initiative inspired youth at Jer's Vision (now known as CCGSD, Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity), who founded The International Day of Pink, an effort to support their peers internationally with resources and ways to make their schools safer.

In 2012 over 8 million people participated.
