Embracing diversity, building community | Apprecier la diversité, forger la communauté

OCISO’s Racial Equity Committee would like to observe the International Day of Pink, on April 13.

Starting in Nova Scotia, the International Day of Pink is an anti-bullying and anti-homophobia event held every year, primarily aimed at to 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This day spanned from an incident in 2007 where a high school student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. The following day allies advocated for the entire school population to wear pink shirts to support this student and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community as a whole. International Day of Pink looks to create a more diverse world for all. Although enormous strides have been made to break down social barriers, discrimination still exists. As a community, we must look at celebrating diversity, creating safer spaces, demanding equality and standing in solidarity.
