Friday, April 16, 2010 is the National Day of Silence, sponsored by GLSEN. Since 1996, the National Day of Silence has brought awareness to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools nationwide. This student-led event has aided in the fight towards creating safe learning environments for all students.
We are looking for stories that reveal how bullying and harassment affected you or your child for the PFLAG blog. By sharing our stories we can remind our schools and communities that bullying impacts all students. We would also love to hear how participating in the National Day of Silence helped foster strong community partnerships, raised awareness or positive change. Parents, students, teachers, allies, etc. are all welcome to share their good experiences, struggles, successes, and everything in between.
Please send your stories to PFLAG’s Safe Schools Coordinator, Mekina Morgan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
