GSA Day of Silence

GSA Day of Silence

Day of Silence

Sophia, Writer

This Friday, April 17, students at Franklin High School can vow to take a form of silence to bring awareness to those in a community who are forced to be silenced due to LGBT bullying and harassment.

The day of silence was founded in 1996. It is the largest student organized movement to create a safer environment for all students, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Students will be able to sign up during lunch and receive a sticker on Friday morning in the cafeteria. This sticker informs others, including teachers, that you are vowing to be silent for the day. You may purchase a button for $1 in support of the cause.
