Jer's Vision launches PURPLE DAY TOOLKIT
(for October 20th, 2010)
Following the recent suicides of Tyler Clementi, Raymond Chase, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Asher Brown, Billy Lucas and others whose story was untold, we have created a toolkit for your school or community organization to organize a Purple Day on Oct 20th, 2010.
Youth internationally have named October 20th, 2010 Purple Day, a day to remember those who were lost this past Sept 2010, and before. Our toolkit makes it easier for you organize your Purple Day. The kit includes 3 posters (1. to raise awareness about Purple Day, 2. to highlight Resources Available; and 2. 'We Remember' poster, to commemorate those lost); as well as ideas & instructions for activities.
LGBTQ youth are frequently victims of homophobic and transphobic bullying and abuse on a daily basis. Studies reveal that suicide attempts of LGBTQ youth are four times more likely than heterosexual youth.
With your support we can work to eliminate tragedies such as these. Take Action. Be a Volunteer. Donate.
Thanks!-Jer's Vision Team
