The Time Has Come

The UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon gave a recent speech telling the world that we all need to speak up for Human Rights. There are many places around the world where gay, lesbian, transgender, questioning, and gender neutral people (LGBTQ) are hurt or even killed just for being who they are. Ban Ki-Moon is calling for an end to the hate. Check out his moving speech here:

 

Day of Silence is Today!

Posted on April 16th, 2010 by Anna in Events

Today is National Day of Silence.  www.dayofsilence.org

Your Teen Librarians here at Copley have pledged to  make everyone feel comfortable regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and are participating by switching off every other hour so there is always someone here to help you! The easiest way to tell which one of us is participating in any given hour is by the book binding tape we’ll be wearing over our mouths.

What are YOU doing to end the silence faced by many bullied LGBTQ teens? Here in the Teen Room we still have a few t-shirts left from yesterday, so feel free to stop by and create a shirt in support of Day Of Silence and LGBTQ youth.

We also have free wristbands, stickers, and PostIt notes explaining the reason why you chose to take the vow of silence today.

And, at 2pm we’re showing the movie RENT! There will be food available too!

If you’re on twitter, feel free to follow @dayofsilence!  And make sure you put #dayofsilence in your posts!
