Day of Silence - April 17, 2009
The National Day of Silence brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. The deliberate silence of participating students echoes that silence, which is caused by name-calling, bullying and harassment. Ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing on this day. What are you going to do to end the silence?
