Day of Silence – Breaking The Silence: Speak Out for Chechnya
Day of Silence is a student-led national event organized in thousands of schools, bringing awareness to the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ 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-LGBTQ behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBTQ students and those perceived to be LGBTQ in the community.
To end the Day of Silence the Spokane Human Rights Commission is partnering with Harvey’s Place to hold Breaking The Silence – Speak Out for Chechnya Rally.
Join us at the Gathering Place next to City Hall to break the silence and speak out against discrimination and hate. The LGBTQIA members of our schools and communities need allies to speak out against harassment, hate and discrimination. We as a community need to be an ally for those who are being persecuted in Chechnya.
Join us in Breaking The Silence for our community and for those in Chechnya.
