Black Shirt Day - January 15th
The Anti-Racism Coalition of Vancouver is organizing Black Shirt Day on Friday, January 15th – a day chosen to honour the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. – leading up to Black History Month in February.
We encourage staff, students and community members to wear a black shirt on Friday, if you have one, to show support for anti-racism efforts as well as actions that promote inclusiveness and celebrate diversity.
Black Shirt Day draws parallels to days such as Pink Shirt Day, in support of anti-bullying, and Orange Shirt Day, which shines a spotlight on the Indigenous residential school experience and the lasting harm it has done in Canada.
Thank you again for your support as we create opportunities for our Bulldog community to engage in this important and meaningful work.
