Day Of Silence

Day of Silence (April 17, 2015)

Silence can create change!

That’s why every year hundreds of thousands of students across the world take a vow of silence on a Friday in April. This quiet but powerful, student-led action raises awareness about the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination.

Anyone can organize a Day of Silence activity or event, and it can be a powerful way to band together and take a stand. Learn more about how to register, organize, what your rights are, and what to do if those rights aren’t being respected. Strength in numbers. Solidarity in silence.

LGBTQ YOUTH - SPEAK OUT ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL EXPERIENCES!

GLSEN

Help GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) inform education policymakers and the public about what's really going on in our nation's schools by completing the 2013 National School Climate Survey, GLSEN's eighth national survey about the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth in school.

If you attended high school or middle school sometime during the last school year (2012-2013) and are at least 13 years old, tell us about your experiences in school.  (If you did not complete the entire school year you can still participate in the
survey.) The survey is completely anonymous.

For more info and to complete the survey online, visit: glsen.org/2013survey
