On Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at 10 a.m., the Toronto Police Service, in partnership with the students at Agincourt Collegiate Institute, 2621 Midland Avenue, will celebrate International Day of Pink by highlighting student-based initiatives and an anti-bullying video.

Mayor John Tory, TDSB Director of Education John Malloy, Agincourt Collegiate Institute Principal Roy Hu, and students, will join Deputy Chief Jim Ramer, members of the Toronto Police Service’s 42 Division, and the Service’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer (LGBTQ) Internal Support Network.

Members of the media are invited to attend. Please follow #StopBullyingNow on Twitter for details.

The International Day of Pink started when a Nova Scotia teen was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. His fellow students rallied – by all wearing pink – and showed their solidarity against LGBTQ-based discrimination.
