WITH October declared Guam Bullying Prevention Month, the Judiciary of Guam is encouraging the community to wear the color orange during Unity Day tomorrow in support of anti-bullying efforts worldwide.

Unity Day, sponsored by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, urges students and community members to unite against bullying by wearing the color orange.

Other ways to participate in Unity Day include writing the word “Unity” on your hand, notebook, or on a poster; hang a banner with the word “unity” and ask everyone to sign it; or even create and wear an orange unity ribbon with a personal bullying prevention message.

“We are asking all schools, anti-bullying partners and the community to promote Oct. 10 as Unity Day,” said Joleen Respicio, Judiciary of Guam Anti-Bullying Program coordinator.

“Some ways to promote Unity Day is to have students wear something orange on Unity Day, either a dress down or wearing an orange ribbon,” she suggested.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido has asked Judiciary of Guam employees to participate in the observance.
