The Canadian Red Cross is recognizing a second Pink Day in Manitoba tomorrow. They decided to celebrate two Pink Days this year on February 24th and April 13th making use of both national and international bullying prevention days to promote respectful relationships.
McIsaac and Ruth Betts Schools celebrated the first Pink Day with assemblies and presentations by students and teachers. This time McIsaac School is encouraging students and staff to wear pink and they’ll watch a video from the Red Cross on Pink Day. Hapnot Collegiate will encourage students to wear pink and they celebrate Think Pink Fridays every week to raise awareness on bullying, discrimination, homophobia and transphobia.
The Red Cross says they encourage people to talk about these issues year round as every day is Pink Day.
