Made In The USA: New Day of Silence tees now available
It’s Day of Silence time again and that means getting the necessary approvals from your school administration, organizing planning meetings and getting stuff to promote the day’s events. It all seems a bit daunting, right? Well it doesn’t have to be- stay calm, read on.
It’s important to GLSEN that as we fight for equality in America’s schools, we are also doing business with ethically sound and socially conscious vendors
GLSEN has officially rolled out the Day of Silence website, complete with event planning tips, Day of Silence images that can be uploaded to your social media networks, a mobile palm card and so much more. If that wasn’t enough, we also have official Day of Silence merchandise coming to you in the next few weeks, which means you can show everyone that you won’t stand for the daily name-calling, bullying and harassment faced by LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT. It’s time it stopped and by your continued support year after year, we know you agree.
Still curious about the Day of Silence promo items we have available? Outfit your friends and teachers with Day of Silence wristbands, stickers, posters, buttons and newly designed, super soft t-shirts. That’s right, 100% cotton, Canvas brand t-shirts hot off the presses with GLSEN’s new logo and Day of Silence design!
What’s better is that the shirts are made right here in the USA and printed by Nightsweats and T-cells. It’s important to GLSEN that as we fight for equality in America’s schools, we are also doing business with ethically sound and socially conscious vendors, which is why GLSEN has a longstanding partnership with Nightsweats and T-cells, a full service screen print and design shop owned and operated by persons living with HIV/AIDS. As a matter of fact, this year marks our 10th official year working alongside them for the Day of Silence!
There will be plenty more updates coming from us leading up to the Day of Silence so check back regularly for tips, updates and relevant safe school news to prepare you for another great event!
And don’t forget to register for the Day of Silence. For us to effectively capture the Day of Silence’s positive impact and prove its importance in shedding light on LGBT issues, we need to know how many people participate- that means you.
Help us end the silence today.
