October 15th is #SpiritDay!

Millions wear purple on Spirit Day to take a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) youth.

Athens, GA has been hosting Spirit Day celebrations since 2012.  This year, the Common Ground LGBT Community Center will serve as the host and bring the LGBTQ & Straight Ally community together to celebrate LGBTQ Youth, national Marriage Equality & Georgia Equality victories.

Georgia Equality, the state’s largest LGBT organization, has been very instrumental in the efforts around Georgia to create safe schools and raise awareness about bullying.

Please wear purple to this event and bring a donation in any amount for Georgia Equality.
If you are not able to attend, please donate online at bit.ly/RSGeorgiaEquality

Please see the flyer for more details!
