In the Peel District School Board tomorrow, April 12th, is the Day of Pink. Peel has taken a safe stance of posing this as a day against bullying in general, which is not a bad message to send to students. The Day of Pink, though, has a broader focus which institutions tend to drop from their discussions.
“The Day of Pink is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny across the world. We invite everyone to celebrate diversity by wearing a pink shirt and by organizing activities in their workplaces, schools and communities.” (taken from the Day of Pink website).
Here’s a video that was generated by students who are not shying away from the issues they understand to be a key focus tomorrow.
A great video about humans, for humans, by humans.
