Coke Employees Take Pride in Celebrating GLAAD Spirit Day

Oct 16, 2014 12:00 PM ET

As one of the world’s most inclusive brands, Coca-Cola values and celebrates diversity. That’s why, today, we are supporting The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) in their efforts to promote Spirit Day – a day where millions of people “go purple” to show their support for LGBT youth. Spirit Day began in 2010 as a way to show support for LGBT youth and encourages people to take a stand against bullying.

Today, we’re turning Coca-Cola’s Journey purple as a show of support for LGBT youth. We also have some personal stories from two of our associates who have overcome bullying in their lives. Check them out here:
