City Takes Part in Pink Shirt Day Wednesday, February 28

For immediate release: Tue, 2018-02-27 10:35
CP18-105

Speak up. Stand Up. Stop Bullying. That’s the message the City is supporting as it encourages residents and civic staff to combat bullying at school, work, home and online by wearing pink on Wednesday, February 28.

To raise awareness of the initiative, a large number of City fleet vehicles, including Transit buses and Roadways equipment can be spotted around the city sporting pink t-shirts. The t-shirts are spray painted on and will stay until the vehicles are washed.

The City of Saskatoon is committed to building a positive and inclusive workplace where all employees feel safe, valued and respected. Bullying is a serious workplace issue that can have adverse effects on employees and organizations as a whole. 

About Pink Shirt Day
Inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia, Pink Shirt Day acts to raise awareness of bullying in schools, workplaces, homes and online, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. Last year, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations. To learn more, visit www.pinkshirtday.ca or www.pinkdaysk.redcross.ca.
