-- From "National Day of Silence fights violence and discrimination against gay youth" Out In America Newswire 4/2/09

Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) and Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) re-introduced a resolution to highlight the National Day of Silence, a day in which students from around the country take a vow of silence to bring attention to the anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) name-calling, bullying and harassment faced in schools by students, teachers and other school staff.

The Day of Silence, coordinated nationally by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), will be on April 17, 2009 this year. Over 500,000 students from nearly 6,500 junior high and high schools in all 50 states and Puerto Rico have participated over the years.

"Sadly, violence and discrimination against LGBT youth is all-too-common in American schools. It is a national disgrace that students feel threatened in school simply because of their sexual orientation," said Rep. Engel. "As a former public school teacher, I am proud to introduce this resolution. Americans need to know that thousands of children each day go to school deprived of a happy adolescence because of the insensitivity and cruelty shown by some fellow students, teachers, staff and parents."
