Day of Silence At HHS


Day of Silence

Mia Lewis and Kieran McAllister

You might be wondering why you saw several people wearing stickers on April 21 that said, “I support equality,” while wearing light blue shirts that read, “National Day of Silence.”

Every April, students from across the country organize a day for students to take a vow of silence. This important event is able to show the detrimental effects of not speaking up for the anti-LGBT community. In Hawthorne High School, the B.E.A.R.S Club ran the event to help support this cause.

Some people wore the stickers and chose to talk, while others took the vow of silence. This is an essential day for many students and teachers to show their support for this crucial cause.
