>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.
We don’t have school on the Day of Silence. Does that mean I can’t participate?
Your school district may not have classes on the Day of Silence, but that doesn’t mean you can’t participate. We encourage everyone to organize their Day of Silence events on a day that works best for them. Schedule your DOS activities on another day or week. You can also collaborate with other schools, GSAs and students in your area to hold your DOS on the same day so you can generate local interest.
If you have any other questions or ideas, or if you want to tell us what you’re planning for your Day of Silence please email us at email@example.com.
