Akron, Ohio, Sept. 30, 2016 – Mayor Dan Horrigan encourages residents to support Blue Shirt Day by wearing blue on Monday, October 3, 2016.

“Oct. 3 will be a day of listening, sharing and action across the world on the issue of bullying,” said Mayor Horrigan. “It is a day to think about our actions and the memories we are creating for others that may cause undue stress.”

Akron Public Schools will be hosting a forum on Oct. 3 with parents and students at Buchtel CLC at 9:45 a.m. to heighten awareness and share ideas on how to end bullying. Superintendent David James along with conference planners, the women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will be in attendance to host the selected student participants and their parents.

In recognition and support of this world day of prevention, the Mayor has invited employers across the city to acknowledge this world day of prevention by allowing their employees to join the City of Akron by wearing blue. Individuals wearing blue may tweet photographs to @AkronOhioMayor with #WearBlue to show their support.
