2011_April_Pink day Students and faculty in Mohawk's Child and Youth Worker program hosted Day of Pink activities at the Fennell Campus today. Day of Pink is the international day against bullying, discrimination and homophobia in schools and communities.

The primary focus of this year's activities was raising awareness about homophobia, said Mohawk professor and event organizer Marco Felvus. The students worked with The Well, a Hamilton based agency dedicated to supporting gay, lesbian, bisexuals and transgender communities in the city.

The main message this year was "please don't stand-by, stand up" when you witness an act of homophobia, or any other discriminatory act. Students got a free barbeque lunch if they participated in one of the activities the CYW students set up that included answering questions about what to do in certain situations.
