Will Obama and Romney Wear Purple Oct. 19th?

Spirit Day: Go Purple on October 19 for #SpiritDay

Take Action:
Join Spirit Day Ambassador Katy Butler and tell the Presidential
candidates to join millions by wearing purple on #SpiritDay to stand
against bullying and support LGBT youth!

Last year on Spirit Day I was so excited to see Ellen DeGeneres and
Oprah Winfrey wear purple on TV, see photos of Times Square lights in
purple and feel supported by my friends on Facebook who changed their
profile pictures to purple, and of course the students at my school who
wore purple in support.

Last year millions of people told LGBT kids they are not alone – just
by wearing purple. And who better to send that message than the two
candidates trying to be the leader of our country?

From Katy’s  new Change.org petition:

If both of these influential men participate by simply wearing purple it
will show LGBT teens like me that there are powerful people who care
about us. I know what it’s like to feel alone, and seeing two of our
country’s political leaders show that they care about our lives could
make a huge difference to. LGBT students, who are 3-5 times more likely
to experience depression and attempt suicide than their counter parts.
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney could take a big step towards ending that
feeling of isolation.
