National Spirit Day - October 18, 2018

National Spirit Day (Oct 18) supports promoting anti-bullying by signing a pledge that the GLAAD, (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) web page hosts, and by wearing purple. Spirit Day is a means of speaking out against LGBTQ bullying and standing with LGBTQ youth.  LBGTQ youth disproportionally face bullying and harassment because of their identities. Pledging to "go purple" on Spirit Day is a way for neighbors, parents, classmates, and friends--to visibly show solidarity with LGBTQ youth and to take part in the largest, most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world.
