The National Day of Silence is a day of action in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.
Students have the opportunity to sign up to participate. Participating students will receive a “rainbow” pin and a speaking card that explains that they are participating the Day of Silence. In the last 1/2 hour of school on April 10th, students that have participated with be invited to a musical performance in the cafeteria to “Break the Silence”.
Founded in 1996, the Day of Silence has become the largest single student-led action towards creating safer schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
