The Day of Silence

Presented by GSA

What is Day of Silence?
It is where you vow to be silent for a cause.

Why do we do it?
For …. every person that has been verbally insulted for their sexual orientation …. LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) youth who are silenced by name calling, bullying, and harassment …. ALL of us are affected by bullying and harassment

How can I be part of the Day of Silence?
• Take a pledge of silence. OR • Be supportive of the people that joined by wearing a tag that says I support but choose to speak.

What do I do on the Day of Silence?
• WEAR YOUR PLEDGE CARD. You will receive your cards at the beginning of the school day. • You are SILENT during the school day. • We will BREAK THE SILENCE at a special event during flex period.
