“We can actually arm these kids with these messages about how to just show up differently. That’s how we can make social change happen ,” said Carolyn Tuckwell CEO of the Boys and Girls club of South Coast B.C.

The cause has galvanized many adult community members to support the cause as well, with companies and first responders coming out to the rally in downtown Vancouver.

“Pink Shirt Day really just says very much out loud, people are there for you,” said Const Jeff Palmer with the West Vancouver police.
