April 13 is the International Day of Pink

April 12, 2022

Wednesday April 13 is the International Day of Pink.

Discrimination takes many shapes, whether it’s based on race, age, disabilities, gender or sexuality. The 2SLGBTQIA+ community is no stranger to the bullying and violence that stems from hateful beliefs. While progress has been made towards removing these social barriers from our society, discrimination still persists. So, every year, on the second Wednesday of April, folks around the world are urged to put on a pink shirt and stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to continue fighting for equality and acceptance.

International Day of Pink has one purpose, to create a more inclusive and diverse world, by encouraging young people to challenge social norms, ask more of their educators, and stand up against bullying towards their 2SLGBTQIA+ peers.

Over the years International Day of Pink has worked with countless educators, politicians and organizations around Canada to spread this message and create young activists for this mission.
