Working to create safe and inclusive K-12 schools for LGBTQ youth. #DayofSilence #NNCW #AllyWeek

We enormously value your support of LGBTQ youth, Zoe! πŸ’œ #Repost @zoesaldana β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ Nearly 8 in 10 #LGBTQ students experience verbal harassment in school. Such harassment silences youth, preventing them from thriving in school. On Friday, April 12, thousands of students will join the #DayofSilence , the largest student-led national protest in support of safe & inclusive schools, supported by @GLSEN. This silent video is in support of #DayofSilence - Please support and post your own video, or even donate $10 to @glsen - link in bio.

Ringing in safer and more inclusive schools! 😁 #BreaktheSilence #Repost @hebronacademy β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ Today we came together to stand with each other and break the silence. πŸ–€πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ–€ . . . Thanks to the efforts of our GSTA, the campus came together to honor and remember those that came before and those that are currently breaking their silence to help our society begin to rise above bigotry, empowering one another to create a culture where everyone can embrace themselves and live their best lives free of persecution. . . . #loveislove #hebronacademy #LGBT #endbigotry #dayofsilence #lgbtq

Looking back on almost 25 years of #DayOfSilence as we look forward to a brighter future for LGBTQ youth. We've made enormous progress, but we still have much further to go to make schools safe and inclusive for all students. We cannot continue the work without you β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ #BreaktheSilence #lgbtstudents #lgbthistory

A silent disco to #breakthesilence ! 🎢 #Repost @viewpointschool β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ Today is the annual Day of Silence observation! It is a day to commemorate the voices silenced in LGBT history due to social ostracization, systemic oppression, suicide, and murder. A number of Upper School students observed the event, and many came to celebrate breaking the silence with a silent disco during I-Block. #dayofsilence
Queer youth and their allies can really fly! πŸ₯ #Repost @eahilltopper β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ The SAFE Club spread its wings today in support of the LGBTQ community and the Day of Silence. Students and faculty stopped by this beautiful visual to show their support and take a selfie. Here are a few of the photos! #dayofsilence #safe #hilltoppers #elginacademy
We appreciate you choosing silence today to stand up for LGBTQ students 🌈 #Repost @busyphilipps β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ It takes a lot for me to not talk, but I support the #dayofsilence . @glsen reports that 8 out of 10 LGBTQ students report verbal, sexual or physical harassment at school and more than 30% report missing at least a day of school in the past month out of fear for their personal safety. The Day of Silence helps bring us closer to making anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and name-calling unacceptable in U.S. schools. Click the link in my bio or visit @glsen to learn more. ❀️
