On the National Day of Silence hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender name-calling, bullying and harassment in their schools.
Sponsored by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, on the National Day of Silence students can speak out against harassment and organize for change for their schools and communities.
The Day of Silence is a Tool for Change. Organizing a Day of Silence (DOS) activity or event can be a positive tool for change-both personally and community-wide. By taking a vow of silence, you’re making a powerful statement about the important issue of bullying.
When you organize others to join you that message becomes louder and louder. You can use this attention as a building block in your plans for larger action.
GET INFORMED, GET INVOLVED
Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools we have for creating change. Not only do they give us a personal connection that numbers and statistics can’t offer, but they offer a glimpse into the real life experiences of others. We each have a voice, and every voice is worth hearing. Do you want to change the world? Start by telling your story.Submit Story
