Speak up.
Stand together.
Stop bullying.



On Friday, 18 May 2018, we're asking New Zealanders to celebrate Pink Shirt Day and stand together to take action against bullying.

If you've received emails from Pink Shirt Day in the past, then sit tight! You'll automatically be registered for Pink Shirt Day 2018 and you'll receive updates from us closer to the date.

If you didn't celebrate Pink Shirt Day last year but would like to join our 2018 notification list, register now.

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.


“Effective bullying prevention involves the whole school community staff, students, parents and whanau. It means having well-planned responses in place for when bullying does occur.”
