An International Anti-Bullying Initiative
The culture of our school communities colors students' education in every sort of way. Bullying, whether virtual or IRL, inhibits any sort of positive learning experience. It's our duty to prevent bullying in the first place, to educate students, model appropriate behavior and to address instances of bullying swiftly.
Pink Shirt Day has become synonymous with anti-bullying efforts in Canada. Started in Nova Scotia in 2007, David Shepherd, Travis Price and a few friends started wearing pink shirts in solidarity when they saw that a Grade 9 student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. This is a powerful example of student upstanders, and a small act that has led to an international movement.
Whether you are an American or Canadian educator, the lesson of Pink Shirt Day is clear: that all students deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and that we all have a responsibility to put an end to bullying. In this webinar, we will explore how you can raise awareness about this day with your own students and empower them to stand up for others when they witness bullying happening.
Attendees will receive:
- A certificate for one hour of professional development
- Access to EVERFI’s digital lessons, totally free of charge
- An toolkit of lessons for educators to recognize and celebrate Pink Shirt Day with students
