Day of Silence[R]: Organizing Manual
Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)
GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all students. Established nationally in 1995, GLSEN envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. Founded in 1996 by students at the University of Virginia, and currently officially sponsored in K-12 schools by GLSEN, the Day of Silence is the largest student-led action to protest the bullying and harassment of LGBT people and their allies. Participants take a day long vow of silence and distribute or wear speaking cards with information about anti-LGBT bias and ways for students and others to "end the silence." This resource is filled with information and organizing strategies that will help make the Day of Silence as successful and effective as possible. These include a Day of Silence Team Building Sheet, a Day of Silence Planning Sheet, a sample local press release, and a sample evaluation.
