National Ally Week is October 15th-19th this year and here at BHS we are educating with our annual ally pledge.
An ally is someone who pledges to support the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) community, not use anti-LGBTQ language or slurs, support efforts to end bullying and harassment, and to encourage others to be Allies.
During lunch, students and faculty are encouraged to come down to the Ally table to sign the Ally pledge.
Ally Week Events:
Monday: Sign the Ally pledge during lunch
Tuesday: Wear RED to support the LGBTQ community
Wednesday: Have your photo taken with an "I am an Ally" sign during lunch
Thursday: Have your photo taken with an "I am an Ally" sign during lunch
Friday: Donate $1 for a raffle to win an Ally Week t-shirt during lunch
