Show my School it's Christian to Support LGBTQ+
So, the school I go to isn’t very supportive of LGBT :(
Before I graduate, I would love to get my school to participate in “The Day Of Silence”
What is the Day of Silence you ask?
A: The GLSEN Day of Silence is a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT 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-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT. (http://www.dayofsilence.org/#f1)
If I could get my school to do this, It could lower stigma around LGBT and show students who are LGBT that we are here for them/ they shouldn't be ashamed of who they are. It will promote self acceptance and love!
I have already talked to faculty about this and they said they “are willing to continue the discussion.” Students have also said they would be willing to participate. But, If I could come back next school year with a petition with 1,000 signatures, I could push the conversation further, maybe even past The Day Of Silence.
By signing this petition, you are going to help set forth tolerance and acceptance at my school. Especially since its christian, you will be showing that there other christians that believe and fight for LGBT.
