Bullying Unity Day: Wear Orange
Today is national unity day to stop bullying. All you have to do to participate is to wear orange.
ELMIRA (WENY)-- Wednesday is national unity day to stop bullying and one local organization is taking a stand against the all too common trend.
The day is Sponsored by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. YWCA Elmira and the Twin Tiers is hosting local teens who created a play based on their experiences with bullying, locally. The Unity Day Celebration starts at 5 and also includes swimming, food and games.
Kim Stanton from YWCA says, "We had several calls from parents whose kids were nervous to go to school because of the bullying that they knew they were going to be facing when they walk through the doors. So tonight is a good night to show that there is help for those kids and people out there who support them."
You can wear orange to support those who've been affected by bullying.
