Join the Purple Party!

On October 20th, students, parents, allies, friends, brothers, sisters, wives, children, will be wearing purple in honor of the six teen suicides that have occurred recently. Everyone needs to feel safe at school, work, and home. Acts like this can be prevented, lives can be saved, friends can continue to share memories together, parents can take prom pictures, and you can help to contribute to that.

Why Purple? I know, it’s BLS, but for this day, it stands for something more important than rivalries. Purple represents life, the heart, the spirit on the LGBT pride flag.
