Pink Shirt Day
February 24, 2021
Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and online. Recognized annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new grade 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing the colour pink.
This Pink Shirt Day, we are focusing on working together and treating others with dignity and respect. We are thinking about our actions and whether they serve to lift people up, or tear people down. Over the past year, COVID-19 has shown us how important we are to each other, and how our actions may help, or they may hurt, other people. Today is a good day to consider our role in making sure everyone in our community feels safe and loved.
This February 24th we are wearing pink at @BeConnected in support of #PinkShirtDay. Join us!

Each December BeConnected’s SOCKS committee collects donations for Victoria’s homeless community. The SOCKs committee came up with the idea of giving items that people may be the least likely to buy, even though they are important for comfort, health and well-being: a good pair of warm wool socks! This year due to COVID-19, our donations will look a little different but will be no less important to those receiving them. Please drop off your donations to any program or office location by Thursday December 17th.
