Day of Silence
Friday, April 24th was GLSEN’s National Day of Silence, a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ+ students and allies take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ+ people in schools. Usually, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive. Thank you to all who participated in this year's virtual Day of Silence. At East, we know that it’s our differences that make our community what it is. We become stronger from acknowledging our differences, learning from each other and growing together. We stand with our LGBTQ+ students!
