Peace Works, an anti-bullying organization at Norwalk High School hosted Pink Shirt Day this past Wednesday the 27th.
Pink Shirt Day is the name of an organization started in Canada. The idea of wearing pink shirts stems from two boys who had a friend who was harased for wearing pink on the first day of school. They distributed pink shirts to all of the boys in their school to stand up for their friend and their message and idea has spread internationally, all the way to Norwalk High School.
Over 200 students and staff members joined the pink movement. During lunch, students who wore pink shirts signed their name on Pink Shirt Day flyers and taped them to the wall to symbolize they stand up for all the victims of bullying as as well as letting go of grudges they may have with those who have bullied them.
Everyone at school was very enthusiastic about Pink Shirt Day and the people that forgot their pink said they would wear it the following day!
