Introduced by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center in 2011, Unity Day is the "signature event" that brings communities together - united against bullying. October 21st, 2020, we will celebrate OUR community’s united stance against bullying and recognize our decision to choose kindness….choose acceptance…choose inclusion. Orange is the official Unity Day color. One of the simplest ways to show your stand against bullying is wear something Orange 🧡 on October 21st. A sock, a scarf, a t-shirt, a hat, a tie…anything orange in your closet counts! @TJTigers #BetterTogether @fccps #WearAMask #SocialDistance #6FeetApart #11MoreVirtualSchoolDays #15MoreVirtualSchoolDays #VOTE
