Youth Commission holds rally

The Abbotsford Youth Commission (AYC) hosts a rally on Pink Shirt Day to promote Bullying Awareness.

The rally will be held Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the AYC Youth Centre at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre, 2499 McMillan Rd., starting at 3:30 p.m.

Abbotsford Police, AYC staff, youth, university students and the public will stand together to recognize the seriousness of this issue in the community.

“Bullying is a serious issue for youth in Abbotsford and we believe that it is essential that we provide every opportunity possible for young people to learn more about what they can do to prevent bullying,” said Bev Olfert, AYC executive director.

She said Pink Shirt Day is a tangible way for youth to show that they are committed to stand up against bullying.
