Go purple on October 15, 2015 for #SpiritDay

On October 15, 2015, thousands of people across the country will wear purple to take a stand against bullying — and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer young people. We are encouraging all Coloradans to wear purple and participate in Spirit Day with One Colorado and GLAAD.

Take the Spirit Day Pledge today.

Why are we brining attention to anti-LGBT bullying? Because here in Colorado, 8 out of 10 LGBT students hear homophobic remarks on a daily basis, 5 out of 10 LGBT students hear negative statements about transgender people every day, and 7 in 10 LGBT students have experienced verbal harassment just because of who they are.*

Join us in taking a stand against bullying by taking the pledge, wearing purple on October 15th, and using your social media accounts to encourage others to do the same.

If you are a student, take action in your community by organizing a volunteer project on the 15th.

By participating in Spirit Day, you can make a difference in the lives of LGBT students!
