THANK YOU FOR CELEBRATING EVERY DAY

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE

  1. Spread the word in you community and join a Street Team.
  2. Plan your Day of Silence by taking the vow of silence. Begin with using the color or greyscale selfie signs at school!
  3. Pass out speaking cards in black & white or color to explain your participation on the day. (For more tips and stories,read the Day of Silence zine created by GLSEN’s 2018-19 National Student Council.)
  4. Use our Breaking the Silence Letter Generator to automatically receive a customized letter to share with a school administrator and ask for LGBTQ-inclusive supports at your school. Use the letter to create a dialogue with your administration, encouraging them to break the silence with you!

GLSEN’s Day of Silence is a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school. If you would like to register to participate, click here
