The Day of Silence is the largest student-led action towards creating safer schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
The event brings attention to anti‑LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) name-calling, bullying, and harassment in schools.
Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti‑LGBT behavior.
The program illustrates the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT.
OutREACH: GSA, which is Cabrini’s Gender & Sexuality Alliance and formerly known as Sanctuary, is organizing Cabrini’s annual Day of Silence.
