Stop Bullying in Sports Week Set for Last Week of February

With the event proving to be extremely successful this year, the Stop Bullying in Sports event will return in 2015 but will run for a FULL week this time! Interviews and articles relating to the topic of bullying in adult and youth athletics will be posted from February 23 through March 2, 2015.

Articles on the blog during this week will focus on how bullying, sexism, homophobia/transphobia, hazing, exclusion, and other bullying behaviors, negatively affect athletes of all ages in not only roller derby, but every sport.

The blog will also, once again, be accepting photos from roller derby leagues, teams and individuals wearing pink for inclusion in a derby themed photo collage. The completed photo will be featured on the blog, Facebook, Twitter and will also be sent to www.pinkshirtday.ca (which posted our collage from last year in their Facebook photo album for Pink Shirt Day 2014).

Keep posted on the Stop Bullying in Sports static page for more news and announcements over the coming months!
