Today is the Day of Silence, GLSEN’s annual day of action to spread awareness about the effects of the bullying and harassment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) students.
Pittsburgh LGBTQ Charities #ProtectTransKids projects have been focused on raising the $1300 to send two boxes of signs to the GSA’s in Pittsburgh Public Schools. The advisors wild decide how to distribute them to all 50 school buildings.
Some teachers put them in classrooms, some students take them home to display in their yard. Other students put them in their bedrooms to remind themselves. Some take the signs to rallies and vigils.
We’ve already successfully crowdfunded recently to send 50 signs to six different communities – Brookline, (City of) Butler, Carnegie, Fox Chapel, McCandless and the (City of) Washington. Overall, we’d produced and distributed 1500 signs since last June.
Will you join us in making sure to remind the kids and the adults that they deserve to be protected?
