Wednesday, October 19, 2016, is UNITY DAY: Together against bullying — united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Make it ORANGE
and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities make your color ORANGE
on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – and send one large ORANGE
message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Individuals across the nation, and even world-wide, can participate in Unity Day.
Wear Orange: Make a statement!
