Join together to celebrate National Unity Day on October 21st
October 21, 2020
As National Bullying Prevention month comes to a close, resident Kelly Cederberg would like to invite the community to stand together against bullying, and community united by their dedication to kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. The “ask” is simple and only requires one to wear the color orange on National Unity Day, October 21, 2020.
The month of October is devoted to celebrating differences and realizing that if we approach others from a place of love and compassion we collectively invest in improving the state of our local communities, or nation, and the state of the planet.
In a year that has seen a pandemic sweep the nation, and a growing concern for racial equality and social justice, the need for communities to unite for a better future grows more real by the moment. Please join together in taking action in your school, workplace, home, and community. Where orange of Wednesday, and come together with this powerful message that bullying should never be a part of childhood.
Kelly asks that you this with one final thought, “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”
This message is sponsored by the local advisory council for behavioral health.
