Spirit Day October 19th. GO PURPLE

Spirit Day: Go Purple on October 19 for #SpiritDay

What is Spirit Day?

An annual day in October when millions of Americans wear purple to speak out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

Where did the idea come from?

An amazing teenager named Brittany McMillan wanted to remember those young people who lost their lives to suicide and to take a stand against bullying.

Who participates?

Students, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals, celebrities, parents and many more. Everyone from Oprah to the cast of Jersey Shore went purple last year. Even the White House joined the cause!

How do I get involved?

It’s easy! Simply take the pledge to “go purple” on October 19th as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.
