>DOS Question of the Week
>We at GLSEN get a lot of questions about Day of Silence. Each week leading up to DOS we’ll post the answer to a common question about organizing and participating in a Day of Silence event.
Why silence? Aren’t we trying to fight against silence?
Through your active silence on the Day of Silence you will send a message that bullying and harassment faced by LGBT and ally youth affects you, your school and community.
And remember, the Day of Silence is a moment to open the conversation on this issue. Follow up your participation with a Breaking the Silence event. You can plan a rally at your school, facilitate a workshop for students and teachers about LGBT issues, throw a party with your GSA or host a discussion group with DOS participants—the sky’s the limit!
