Tomorrow (April 11th) students from across the country will be participating in the annual Day of Silence. If your school is participating (even if you aren’t part of a GSA or student organization), make sure to register with GLSEN.
Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition along with other Southern partners will be coordinating via Twitter so if you’re not able to participate or if you’re an adult ally looking for ways to help, check us out via social media.
