Day of Silence

The Day of Silence is an annual event held to bring attention to anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination in schools. Students and teachers nationwide will observe the day in silence to echo the silence that LGBT and ally students face everyday. The Day of Silence is one of the largest student-led actions in the country.

10% Alliance and Allies has led the Framingham State College community in participating in the National Day of Silence for the past four years. Each year, a large number of students, faculty, and staff take part in the silent protest against homophobia. T-Shirts have been given out each year to anyone who wishes to participate and they are encouraged to wear that shirt on the Day in order to show their participation and support.

Last year was our most successful year yet with over 200 people signing up, even after all our shirts were gone. This year we hope to get 10% of our school's population to be involved with 350 participants.
