Green Living Ottawa is briefly going pink to let you know about the Day of Pink coming up on April 10, 2013. It’s a day created by youth to celebrate diversity and stand up against homophobic, transphobic and other forms of bullying.
This year Jer’s Vision, the organization behind the International Day of Pink, is organizing a Day of Pink Gala in Ottawa. The event features the Rt. Hon. Michaëlle Jean, CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi, Olympian Mark Tewksbury, and Over the Rainbow finalist Stephanie La Rochelle. It takes place April 10 at 6 p.m. at the Government Conference Centre, 2 Rideau St. Admission is free; send an email to RSVP (at) JersVision (dot) org to register.
Here’s what Jer’s Vision has to say about the Day of Pink: “Each year on the second Wednesday of April, millions of people wear pink to remember that positive actions make a difference. And that the change starts with each one of us.”
