Get Involved: #SpiritDay

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

Tomorrow is the third annual Spirit Day, a day when supporters wear purple to show their support for LGBT youth and rejection of the anti-LGBT bullying that too often can have devastating consequences. Spirit Day began two years ago amid a spike of youth suicides in the wake of bullying.

There are many ways you can get involved this year and show your support. You can use HRC’s Spirit Day Facebook app, so all your friends and family know about the power of purple. And this year, HRC is partnering with GLAAD on a resource kit with tips on everything from how to turn your Facebook picture purple for the day, to engaging local officials, lawmakers and the media in meaningful conversations on bullying.

Check back tomorrow for coverage of Spirit Day on HRC’s blog, and be sure to check out our Facebook app and the #SpiritDay resource kit!
