day-of-pink-logoOn April 8, 2015, join your union in taking a stand against bullying, discrimination, homophobia and transphobia in our schools, workplaces and communities by participating in the International Day of Pink.

In the wake of attacks on LGBTQ rights in Arkansas and Indiana, it’s more important than ever to stand up for equality, diversity, and inclusivity in our society.

We hope you can show your support against bullying, discrimination and homophobia and transphobia by observing the day and/or wearing pink.
