Unity Day

|


I was reminded this morning by my favorite radio host, which I listened every morning during my regular light activity & stretching routine, that October 21 was a Unity Day in US.

Today, October 21, is celebrated as Unity Day in US the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month has been recognized in the United States since 2011. It is stated that Unity Day participants, individuals, schools, communities, and businesses are encouraged to wear or display orange (a message of hope and support) showing that our society believes that no child should ever experience bullying.

National Bullying Prevention Month is a campaign in the United States founded in 2006 by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. The campaign is held during the month of October and unites communities nationwide to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. Initially held the first week in October, the event was expanded in 2010 to the entire month.
