Schools in Wichita and elsewhere will participate in the Million T-Shirt March, a national anti-bullying initiative, on Thursday, May 2.

Students will wear matching anti-bullying shirts and pledge to speak out against bullying, district officials said in a news release.

At South High School on Thursday, students will form a giant peace sign in the school’s gym and sign pledge cards to not be a bully and to be an “upstander” rather than a bystander if they see someone being bullied.

Other activities planned at Wichita schools include anti-bullying marches and pep rallies, officials said.
