DAY OF SILENCE, FRI., 4/17
The Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to 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 you come into school on Friday, you will have the option of taking a vow of silence for the day to show your solidarity in the battle against bullying and harassment of LGBTQ students across country, for those that feel silenced.
If you choose to participate, you will be given a little card to wear that explains why you are not speaking on Friday and be given the option to tape your mouth shut. Practicing silence does not excuse you from presenting in class, though teachers should respect your choice to not speak.
