Students Celebrate National Unity Day by Wearing Orange
On Tuesday, October 25, students from Crofton High School were asked to wear orange in honor of National Unity Day. This is the signature event for National Bullying Prevention Month.
National Unity Day has been recognized in the United States since 2011 and is held annually on the third or fourth Wednesday in October. On this day individuals, schools, communities, corporations, and celebrities join together against bullying and unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Those who cannot actively participate in the national events that happen on this day wear orange. Why orange? The color orange was used because it was described as vibrant, warm and inviting and is commonly associated with safety and visibility. The main goal is to raise awareness of bullying and put a stop to it. “Make it Orange and Make it End! Unite Against Bullying!”
