The Day of Silence is a youth movement that brings awareness to the bullying that the LGBTQ community face across the nation.


Friday, April 21, students can show their support and stand up for the LGBTQ community by wearing a special t-shirt and/or ribbon.

How to get involved:

Students are encouraged to show their support for the LGBTQ community by wearing red and/or purchasing ribbons in room 0154 for $1. Free stickers and $15 shirts will also be available.

How you’re helping:

If you are willing to purchase a shirt, all proceeds will be donated to The Trevor Project which works on preventing suicide in LGBTQ youth.

They said it:

“We just want to bring awareness and were hoping that lots of kids will participate,” GSA advisor Katy Walters said.
