Richmond is a respectful, safe, caring and connected community that values individual differences.
This initiative from School District 38 was created to combat bullying in Richmond. Bullying is a reality in the lives of many young people, affecting their education, connections and opportunities to have a safe and healthy journey into adulthood.
Richmond Fire-Rescue supports and participates in this day by wearing pink epaulettes.
“Pink Shirt Day” originated in 2007 when two Nova Scotia Secondary students gave pink shirts to people in their school to wear in protest, after discovering a younger student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. This day has evolved into a nationwide awareness campaign to ERASE bullying.
