Pink Shirt Day is a way for your community to stand together against bullying. With Pink Shirt Day quickly approaching on February 26th, we felt is was only appropriate to share some of the Pink Shirt Day activities taking place in communities across Alberta!
Don’t forget to share your Pink Shirt Day photos with us on Facebook and Twitter by using the hashtag #albertapink
