Baldwin Schools Celebrate Unity Day 2022

Students and Faculty Stand Together Against Bullying

Students and faculty across Baldwin Union Free School District joined others world-wide in wearing orange on Unity Day 2022 to show that the schools stand together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. The annual awareness event was created by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in an effort to join together in one message of hope and support. Orange represents safety and visibility and often described as warm and inviting, while its vibrancy makes an impactful statement. 

“The simple act of wearing orange shows that youth experiencing bullying are not alone. The goal of wearing and sharing orange is to empower those who are bullied, and everyone around them, to speak up and reach out with kindness, acceptance, and inclusion,” said Julie Hertzog, NBPC director.
