The National Day of Silence

This Friday, the ChiArts Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is hosting The National Day of Silence, a day of action in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. You can read more about The National Day of Silence here:

I encourage all of you to vow to stay silent on Friday to show your solidarity with those people who are affected by ALL forms of bullying and harassment. We have all been affected by bullying or harassment at one time or another and the Day of Silence is a great way to show others that you empathize with their situation and are willing to stand up for them.

Your Right To Stay Silent
While you DO have a right to participate in the Day of Silence between classes and before and after school, you may NOT have the right to stay silent during instructional time if a teacher requests for you to speak. Participants are reminded to talk with their teachers ahead of time and carry around the Day of Silence card during classes so we know that you are participating.

GSA is selling Day of Silence t-shirts ($10) and bracelets ($1) during lunches today and tomorrow. Cash (preferred) and checks accepted.

Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.
