GLAAD Partnering with GLSEN for National Day of Silence

Content

This is a debugging block

This year, GLAAD is partnering with GLSEN in support of a National Day of Silence. On April 19, 2013, we invite students across the nation to take action and vow to take a form of silence in an effort to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.

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. From the first-ever Day of Silence at the University of Virginia in 1996, to the organizing efforts in over 8,000 middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities across the country in 2008, its textured history reflects its diversity in both numbers and reach.

For resources and information about how to participate in Day of Silence, visit GLSEN's National Day of Silence Facebook page and website.
