Two universities illuminated their buildings in pink in a show of support for Vice President Leni Robredo’s bid for presidency.

On Friday, Oct. 15, Robredo’s alma mater Universidad de Sta. Isabel lit up the facade of its building using the color pink, the fresh campaign color of the Vice President, as “a bright effort in support of its esteemed alumna.”

Robredo spent her grade school and high school at the University.

Adamson University (AdU) recently lit up its facade “to show solidarity with the cause of Vice President Leni Robredo.”

“She has shown resistance to corruption, disdain for injustice, and an untainted love for the poor reflected by her wholehearted service,” AdU wrote on its Facebook page.

“We have had strongmen and political dynasties lead our nation. It’s time we don’t settle for less. Let us choose genuine servant-leadership.”

Right after Robredo’s declaration on Oct. 7, her supporters, who dubbed themselves as “kakampink,” flooded social media with pictures in pink frames or messages written in the color.

Other even put up pink ribbons outside their homes.
