WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Feb. 12, youth around the world will celebrate the seventh annual Day of Purity, a call for youth of all ages to remain sexually pure until marriage.
The Day of Purity is a project of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the family.
According to organizers, the Day of Purity is designed to counter cultural messages that promote young people having sex early, often, and with many partners. During the first six years of celebrating the Day of Purity, youth from thousands of schools joined with hundreds of organizations around the world in celebrating sexual purity.
Amber Haskew, coordinator of the Day of Purity, said: “The Day of Purity gives the youth of our nation an opportunity to stand against cultural expectations shoved on them through the media. We are encouraging youth to respect themselves and their friends. We’ve received thousands of e-mails from students around the world who want to make a public commitment for sexual purity and to share that choice with their friends.”
The Day of Purity web site, DayOfPurity.org, allows anyone to download a planning manual along with informative flyers on a variety of topics, order a LivePure wristband and Day of Purity T-shirt, and link to other valuable resources.
