Day of Silence In-Person Guide

This year, the Day of Silence theme is My Silence, My Story.

Where LGBTQ+ people in schools are often silenced and erased, this direct action is a reclamation of that forced silence and erasure. This time LGBTQ+ students and educators are choosing to be silent on their own accord and demonstrate the impact on the entire school community when LGBTQ+ people are silenced and erased.

GLSEN’s in-person participation resources will provide opportunities for student leaders to organize their day of action and engage in creative and impactful ways to tell their story especially in incorporating racial, gender, and disability justice. The purpose of these resources are to help students and educators participate, and support people on your campus to take action and join this campaign on April 23, 2021.
