Day of Silence 2014 Highlights: Tyler Oakley, USA Today & So Much More

Just over a week ago, youth across the United States and around the world came together in a non-violent protest with a 19-year history. What once started as a class project has become an international movement in which students take a vow of silence in order to highlight the experiences of LGBT youth and to call on their school educators, administrators, and decision makers to ensure safe schools for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

Read more below about how the Day of Silence came to be, and join the hundreds of thousands of students who have come together to rise up and make a difference. 

Thank you for helping us make the Day of Silence what it is today!
