Naomi started working with Wear it Purple in 2015, jumping into the Operations role having never even been in Mardi Gras! In her (going on) three years, Naomi has worked with executive members to continue the exponential growth of the Wear it Purple campaign.
She continues to focus on expanding the campaign’s reach nationally across various demographics including schools and corporate groups, and pursuing opportunities to create safer and more supportive environments for young people – because that’s why she’s here!
Why you’re involved: Because I care. I was lucky enough to have an incredibly supportive group of people around me when I came out; and I was still scared. I want each and every young person to know that they can be proud of who they are, and that there will always be somebody who supports them. Wear it Purple Day is the most incredible demonstration of support and acceptance – no words need be uttered; the simple sight of seeing someone wear purple and show you they support you is empowering. I’m here because what we do makes a difference; because it has the capacity to change a life; because it matters; and that’s an incredible thing. Working with Wear it Purple can only be described as an incredibly exhilarating, exhausting, educational and rewarding experience! Definitely one of my better life choices.
