Day of Silence

The Day of Silence is held each year in April.

About the Day:

The Day of Silence is held each year in April. It began in 1996 and is organized by GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of LGBTQ2+ people. The day is marked in different ways all over the world. Local organizations like GSAs and OK2BME often organize Day of Silence projects and events.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of students across the world take a vow of silence on a Friday in April to raise awareness about the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination.

Visit GLSEN for ideas about how your students and GSA can participate in this day: https://www.glsen.org/day-silence
