day finder What is Day of Silence ? day finder

The Day of Silence is a yearly event organized by the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to promote positive action to put an end to name calling, bullying, and harassment against LGBT students and their allies. As recently as 2009, GLSEN's surveys revealed that 90% of LGBT students report verbal, sexual, or physical harassment at school. More than 30% missed at least one day of school out of fear for their safety.

The day isn't marked by speeches. Instead, hundreds of thousands of LGBT students and supporters take a vow of silence that lasts all day. This act symbolizes the way this disadvantaged group has been silenced and made to feel afraid. The date for the Day of Silence varies, but it is in April each year on a school day. Students are encouraged to notify their school administration prior to the event and obtain permission for organizing a Day of Silence event.
