James J. Martin, a leading Catholic theologian and Culture Editor of the Jesuit magazine America, has tweeted his support for Spirit Day. Millions of Americans will be wearing purple on October 19 to speak out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.
Now that you've taken the Spirit Day pledge to go purple in a stand against bullying, you can make a donation to support #SpiritDay! Help GLAAD keep the Spirit alive by donating $10.19 (or whatever you can) today.
The National Basketball Association (NBA), the National Women’s Basketball Association (WNBA), Major League Soccer (MLS), the New York Stock Exchange, Times Square and Facebook will join hundreds of celebrities, corporations, news outlets and schools, as well as millions of Americans in wearing purple for Spirit Day on October 19 in a stand against bullying and to show their support for LGBT youth.
