Unity Day
Oct 25 all-day

Together against bullying. United for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities make your color ORANGE on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – and send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

Individuals across the nation, and even world-wide, can participate in Unity Day.

See the various ways in which you can participate here.
