National Day of Silence

Friday, April 27, 2018

On April 27, EBI’s middle school students participated in the National Day of Silence because they wanted to show their support for LGTBQ+ students nationwide. During the event, a group of students chose to remain silent for the entire day to represent the silence many LGTBQ+ students must endure in their lives. At 1 PM, the entire middle school gathered in the courtyard for a three minute circle of silence (this timing coincided with other schools across the country) and the SAGA students closed the event with a poetry reading in the afternoon.  We want to extend a special thanks to our SAGA students, along with their faculty advisor Sooz Worthing, for all of the work they put into planning the day.
