Today is Day of Silence, an event organized by GLSEN nationwide. According to GLSEN, “On the National Day of Silence hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in their schools.”

This year, the Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition purchased 150 t-shirts to distribute to gay-straight alliances, student groups, and community groups across the state. We are proud to report that the t-shirts went fast! Every year, participation in Day of Silence is growing in Mississippi. If we are missing your group or school, email us at email@example.com.
