On October 17, ACLU of Ohio staff will be dressed in purple for Spirit Day, a national day against bulling and in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth.

We’re not the only ones going purple. Betty White, everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, will be “Betty Purple” on October 17. So will the rest of the cast of Hot in Cleveland and millions of other Americans.

Celebrate Spirit Day! Sport purple on Oct. 17.

Spirit Day was created in 2010 by Brittany McMillan, a high school student who wanted to take a stand against bullying. So she reached out to GLAAD for help. Together, they recruited teachers, students, and workplaces across the country to stand with them.
