Students Observe National Day of Silence

WSC Students Support National ‘Day of Silence’

April 28, 2008
By: Worcester State University News

The National Day of Silence brings attention to anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.

This year’s event was held in memory of Lawrence King, a California 8th-grader who was shot and killed February 12 by a classmate because of his sexual orientation and gender expression.

Hundreds of thousands of students came together on April 25 to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior.
