Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is asking the community to think positive, write positive, and post positive in support of Pink Shirt Day on February 28, 2024.

The theme for this year’s Pink Shirt Day is “Lift each other up.” It is a simple statement with a powerful message that encourages everyone to work together and treat others with dignity and respect.  

Along with wearing pink, the #PostPositive campaign encourages individuals to think kind thoughts about someone and write them down, create a piece of art, send a thoughtful e-mail, or post a kind video. Be sure to tag us on social media so we can help spread your message of kindness.

“On Pink Shirt Day, we encourage all residents to join together and celebrate diversity, inclusion, and acceptance for one another,” said Mark Crowell, Chief of Police. “Let’s lift each other up, not only today, but every day. It is important that we stand together and recognize the ways in which we can make a difference in the lives of those around us.”

Calling All Teachers!

Bullying doesn’t have boundaries; it can happen anywhere, including schools, workplaces, homes, and even online. Now more than ever, we need to support one another, look beyond differences, and celebrate things that make us unique.
