Broadway Youth Center is participating in GLSEN’s Day of Silence, a national youth movement that highlights the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ+ people in schools. Over 4 in 6 LGBTQ+ students do not see positive LGBTQ+ representation in their curriculum, nearly 9 in 10 experience harassment or assault, and almost a third miss school because they feel unsafe or uncomfortable.

Together we can break the silence by making schools more inclusive for all. Visit glsen.org/DayOfSilence to learn more.
