TDSB Celebrates International Day of Pink

Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB

Ensuring accepting and safe schools means creating a positive school climate that is welcoming and supportive of all students, staff and community and free from all forms of bullying, bias, prejudice and hate.  Everyone can play a role in promoting a positive school climate by taking action to make schools safe and accepting.

To further recognize and to stand up against bullying, the TDSB participates in the International Day of Pink on April 12. On this day, our staff and students – and communities around the world – unite in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying. The Day of Pink is more than just a symbol of a shared belief in celebrating diversity – it’s also a commitment to being open minded, accepting differences and learning to respect each other.

On Wednesday, April 12, we urge every member of our TDSB community to show support by wearing pink and taking action to promote diversity and prevent homophobia, transphobia, transmisogyny, and all forms of bullying.
