Take a look at how people on Twitter showed their support against bullying and various discriminations against race, age, disabilities, gender or sexuality. International Day of Pink.
Misguided kids and teens around the world try and force their power on a vulnerable person that ends up hurting the other person. There have been a number of cases of bullying reported across the globe with it growing to become a serious cause of concern. It was one such incident that let to the formation of International Day of Pink. When David Shepherd and Travis Price saw one of their school-mates being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school, they gathered a bunch of other friends and wore pink to school the next day. This retaliation from the students encouraged youth at Jer’s Vision to find International Day of Pink as an effort to help their confidants across the world with sources that will help them make their institution safer.
This day that is observed in the second week of April saw about 2 million participation in 2012. People continue to become a part of this day every year. Now, however, the idea of the day has broadened and is observed as a protest against any kind of bullying, discrimination, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and transmisogyny.
Here’s how Twitter celebrated International Day of Pink:
Today is International Day of Pink. A day to stand up and end bullying. Everyone is free to be who they are, how they are and what they are. Missing these two sweet faces when we were all twinning in pink together. pic.twitter.com/hTEe6Iyph3
