Today is Day of Silence.
Sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, the event has student participants in every U.S. state, D.C., and over 50 other countries.
As described by GLSEN:
The Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT 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-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.
Please support the students in your life who are undertaking this important action today. To sign up, or learn more, visit http://www.dayofsilence.org/
