The Upper School GSA (Gender-Sexuality Alliance) is continuing the over-twenty-year tradition of participating in the GLSEN Day of Silence, a national student-led initative where LGBTQ students and allies take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools. In addition to being silent and wearing black to observe the day, students and allies were invited to don progressive pride flag stickers as an act of solidarity. At the end of the day, students gathered to connect, discuss the initiative, and share their perspectives.
Founded by a group of teachers in the 1990s, GLSEN is an organization that works to create affirming learning environments for LGBTQ youth through activating supportive educators and supporting student-led movements. Read more here.
