[Reminder] Day of Silence 2017, April 21

“GLSEN’s Day of Silence is a student-led national event organized in thousands of schools, bringing awareness to the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBTQ behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBTQ students and those perceived to be LGBTQ.”

When: Friday, April 21st, 2017

GLSEN has developed several of resources to help assist GSA’s with planning (even last minute planning), addressing resistance, printable: posters, stickers, and palm cards, a legal rights sheet from Lambda Legal, and breaking the silence after the day is over. Click Here to get access to all of these resources and more!
