National Day of Silence 2020: Breaking the Silence! April 24th is National Day of Silence! The National Day of Silence is put on by GLSEN and is a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools. This year’s theme is Breaking the Silence and the Sacramento LGBTQ+ Center has built an entire day of virtual activities that you can check out on Facebook.
Started in the mid 90’s by two college students, the Day of Silence has expanded to reach hundreds of thousands of students each year. Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with #BreakingtheSilence to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.
