From its humble beginnings in 2007 in small-town Nova Scotia, Pink Shirt Day has spread across the globe as a way to simply encourage us to look beyond our differences and celebrate the things that make us unique. When we lift each other up, we see past the things which separate us and see instead the things that unite us as people. Last year alone, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations.

On February 26, 2020, we encourage everyone at the Waterloo Catholic District School Board to practice kindness and wear pink to school or work to symbolize unity in inclusion. The focus for 2020 is “lift each other up.”
