Staff of the Cook Islands Football Association showed pink pride on Fri, 26 May 2017, in support of the anti-bullying message. They have taken a stand against bullying, showing their support by donning colourful and creative clothing.
Stories about bullying and its impacts on individuals and society are commonplace in the media today. Pink Shirt Day is honored in 25 countries and thousands of schools and businesses come together to say “no” to bullying.
CIFA strives to maintain a healthy environment for all footballers and fans on and off the field. Ensuring our offices, playing fields and buildings are fair, inclusive and void of bullying is a shared responsibility.
“We are proud to show support for Pink Shirt Day. Encouraging a positive, safe and comfortable environment every day is a priority for Cook Islands Football” – Media Officer Alexander Pere
Pink Shirt Day has grown over the past few years to promote the message that bullying has to stop.
This is not just a one-day promotion,” Pere said. We want to promote this (anti-bullying) every day.”
