Minnesota Schools Celebrate Unity Day, Stand Up To Bullying

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Schools and students across the Twin Cities are standing up to bullying on Unity Day.

They’ll be hosting events and wearing orange to show their commitment to the cause. This is the tenth year of National Bully Prevention Month.

The Interstate 35W and Lowry bridges will also be lit up orange Wednesday night.

According to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, one in four students are bullied in the U.S.

  1. Isn’t “Unity Day” an act of bullying? Kids who don’t want to wear Orange feel out of place, I think this is just the DFL using public schools to push their brand of religion and politics on children.
