Pink Shirt Day & Taking a Stand Against Bullying
As an advocate you’re hyper aware of bullying. You’ve seen it happen to the people you support. You’ve heard people use the r-word or seen people make fun of the speech patterns, gait, or physical appearance of a person you support. I’ve been there and I know you have too.
You tirelessly work to support inclusion and that means standing up to bullies every day. You mentor, coach, build self-esteem, listen, listen, and then do more listening to the people you support because you know how tough it can be to be different.
Today is pink shirt day. It’s an opportunity to break the silence that paralyzes many bullying victims. Wearing pink is a stand against the put downs, violence, and verbal abuse many people face on a day to day basis.
A bully’s strength comes from silence. I’m proud to wear pink and stand up with you all.
