Spectrum Sponsors Day of Silence on Campus
Members of the MBS community participated in The National Day of Silence on April 20th in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning) bullying and harassment.
Morristown-Beard's efforts were organized by Spectrum, a group of students that meets regularly to discuss LGBTQ issues that are happening in our world today.
The club's goal is to help students and faculty become aware of issues such as anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment as well as provide a safe space for LGBTQ students and their allies.
Founded in 1996 at the University of Virginia, the Day of Silence has become the largest student-led action towards creating safer schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
