How are you Breaking the Silence?

Breaking the SilenceHundreds of thousands of participants across the country have taken a vow of silence today to highlight the impacts of anti-LGBT bullying & harassment on youth. As the day comes to a close, we wanted to suggest some actions you can take to break the silence in the coming days, weeks and months.

If you have a minute:

  • Tweet and share the image onto your social media channels to educate others on the experiences of LGBT youth
  • Thank the visible and supportive educators in your school for supporting LGBT students & those participating in the Day of Silence
  • Tell your elected officials to support the Safe Schools Improvement Act (#SSIA) by signing these letters
