Stand up against bullying

February 21, 2017

 

At QMUNITY, we believe that it takes courage and support to grow up into who you are. And yet for so many in our communities, bullying makes getting the courage and support needed difficult. Bullying continues to be a major problem in our schools, our workplaces, our homes, and over the Internet.

On February 22, 2017, wear pink to promote Pink Shirt Day, and as a reminder to be kind to others. Combating bullying is everyone’s responsibility. Together we can help make the change.
