"Start the conversation, keep it going", Wear It Purple Day, 2021

Wear It Purple Day statement, 2021

Wear It Purple Day celebrates the diversity of Australian students and their right to dignity and respect at school. We celebrate its values of inclusion, and grass roots efforts to support community education and non-profits.
