Schools Across the Country and Around the World • 1550 Bryant Street Suite 800, San Francisco
Hundreds of thousands of students at thousands of middle schools, high schools and colleges will take some form of a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Why?
Because nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT students experience harassment in American schools each year.
Because 60% of LGBT youth feel unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation.
Because nearly 1 out of 3 LGBT youth missed school in the past month because of safety concerns.
What are you going to do to end the silence?
