Speak up.
Stand together.
Stop bullying.


On Friday, 26 May 2017, we asked New Zealanders to celebrate Pink Shirt Day and stand together to take action against bullying – and you did!

Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, mobilising their whole school, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.

Pink Shirt Day aims to create schools, workplaces and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected.

Registering for Pink Shirt Day (Friday, 18 May 2018)

If you've received emails from Pink Shirt Day in the past then sit tight and don't do anything because you'll automatically be registered for Pink Shirt Day which is on Friday, 18 May 2018 and you'll receive updates from us closer to the date.

If you didn't celebrate Pink Shirt Day 2017 but would like to join the mailing list for 2018, then register now
