Solidarity is Pink

April 1, 2015

April 11 is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia and Transphobia in schools and communities.

Celebrate diversity and raise awareness to end bullying by downloading your very own D.I.Y Day of Pink Solidarity decal below.  Just print it using iron-on transfer paper to create your own t-shirt.  A light pink shirt will work best. Show your solidarity by wearing the t-shirt and organizing Day of Pink events in your workplace, communities and schools. Together, we can put a stop to homophobic and transphobic bullying, discrimination and violence.
