Greene Street Friends Prepares for Day of Silence
After a morning assembly, students are given a sticker to show their participation and remain silent until the end of the day when everyone breaks their silence together. Students explain, "We participate in the Day of Silence because it is a way to show support, validation, and recognition for members of the LGBTQ+ community that are silenced. Sometimes, because of discrimination, it can be hard or even unsafe for LGBTQ+ people to speak their truth."
GSAFE leaders created a Powerpoint to share more details about the Day of Silence with their peers, which you can download or view here:
