On Day of Silence, Here's Where to Break the Silence

This year, on GLSEN's Day of Silence on April 21, students, educators, and advocates across the country will take a vow of silence as a symbol of the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ bullying, harassment, and discrimination. At the end of the day or soon after, folks will gather in their local communities to "break the silence," committing to fight for LGBTQ-inclusive schools. 

If you haven't already, register for Day of Silence. Then, find out where you can break the silence in your community, or learn how to organize your own rally. 

If you're organizing a public event, tell us about it, and we'll add it to our list.
