The Day of Silence was Friday April 15th. We had approx 123 students participate and take a vow of silence for the day. Below is the announcement we read on Friday.
The GLSEN Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.
Today our deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by anti-LGBT bullying, name-calling and harassment. We believe that ending the silence is the first step toward building awareness and making a commitment to address these injustices.
Think about the voices you ARE NOT hearing today
