Day of Silence
Transcript of Day of Silence
April 16, 2015
Why are we doing it?:
9 out of 10 LGBTQ+ teens in this country have reported being bullied because of their sexual orientation.
The silence represents people who havent been able to talk about the fact that they are LGBTQ+ because they are scared of the "consequences".
We will be selling buttons to allies and signing up students who would like to participate at lunch this week. (the price is $1)
Students signing up to participate will also write a reason for their participation.
I pledge to be silent on
April 16, 2015 to bring
attention to anti‑LGBT
and harassment in
Because no one deserves that much pain.
What is The Day of Silence?:
Its a day where students stay silent to represent the bullying and harassment of LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer)
students in schools.
The high school is also participating in this event.
This ends at the end of the school day, but you may choose to continue after school.
