Will You Wear Pink Today?

April 10this the Day of Pink, the International Day against bullying, discrimination, homophobia and transphobia in schools and communities. The Green Party of Canada invites everyone to celebrate diversity by wearing pink today.

“I will be wearing pink today. Day of Pink is about speaking out and letting everyone know that we will not accept bullying and discrimination in our schools and workplaces. This remarkable movement is a testimony to the power of collective action,” said Green Leader Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands.

“All of us desire the basic human rights of freedom and dignity, which bullying destroys. Communities need not only to have zero tolerance for bullying but also resolve its root causes, too often a result of poverty and a lack of community education,” remarked Joe Foster, Human Rights advocate for the Green Party of Canada.
