GLSEN’s Day of Silence, on April 24th, 2020, is a student-led national protest where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school. A big part of the campaign is "breaking the silence." This may come in the form of assemblies, rallies, events, or writing letters to decision-makers. This is an opportunity for LGBTQ students to end the day by asking for people to take action in making their schools more inclusive. Take part in the protest by taking a vow of silence to highlight the need for change.
