Pink Shirt Day was launched after a young boy was bullied because he was wearing a pink t-shirt. Two of his friends stood up for him, and distributed pink t-shirts to students and teachers at their school.
By showing solidarity, these 2 boys showed that they could effect positive change, and bullying stopped at their school. Equitas works to empower youth so that they can make a difference in their communities. Equitas is proud to be wearing a Pink T-Shirt!
