About National Unity Day – Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Wear and share orange to show that we are together against bullying, and united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to showing that you believe that all youth should be safe from bullying? Come together in one giant ORANGE message of hope and support, WEAR AND SHARE ORANGE to color our nation, and even the world, visibly showing that our society believes that no child should ever experience bullying.

ORANGE provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center. “Whether it’s hundreds of individuals at a school wearing ORANGE, store owners offering ORANGE products, or a community changing a landmark to ORANGE, the vibrant statement becomes a conversation starter, sending the supportive, universal message that bullying is never acceptable behavior.”

Order your official orange T-shirt!

Order a t-shirt to encourage everyone to choose kindness, acceptance, & inclusion. Being there for each other is now more important than ever!

Available until Oct. 31st - Order your T-shirt here!

This custom designed t-shirt inspires your community to “Choose Kindness, Acceptance, and Inclusion.” Available for $12 per shirt, with 100% of net proceeds going to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
