Hey BPS! Purple Shirt Day is this week! There are many organizations and causes that ask us to wear purple to show support (Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Children’s Aid Society – to name a few) but this week, wearing purple is in support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
Some of our Student Leaders, with a passion for equity, have prepared this message for you in hopes of standing together against bullying directed at those people who identify as 2SLGBTQ+
“On Thursday October 18th, help Bakersfield Public School support the 2SLGBTQ+ community by wearing purple! Take part in spreading a diverse and safe message, while helping equality become a more significant part of our community. Be Bakersfield Proud and join us by wearing a purple shirt!”
