Day of Silence April 15, 2011

Hundreds of thousands of students at thousands of middle schools, high schools and colleges will take some form of a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.

  • Because nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT students experience harassment in American schools each year.
  • Because 60% of LGBT youth feel unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation.
  • Because nearly 1 out of 3 LGBT youth missed school in the past month because of safety concerns.

What are you going to do to end the silence?
