EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – The latest observance of Unity Day spread both orange and kindness throughout the state, country and world.
The Minnesota-based PACER organization launched the day in 2011 as part of their anti-bullying month. They specifically selected orange as the movement’s color, given its availability in October and the connection to warmth. But they believe the true strength of the day is in supporting those who are bullied.
“We really wanted to give schools and communities the opportunity to show students who experience bullying that they’re not alone and that we’re here for them, and we’re united for kindness and acceptance and inclusion,” said Bailey Huston, Coordinator at PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
