On April 19, 2013 William Allen Gay Straight Alliance hosted "Day of Silence" at William Allen High School. The goal of the Gay Straight Alliance at Allen is to foster tolerance and understanding through education and community service.
The nationwide event, "Day of Silence", is particularly relevant because of William Allen's commitment to anti-bullying. Local Chapter member, Dick Orlemann, attended the event which drew approximately 90 students. Representing AFSP, Dick spoke with the group about bullying and suicide.
After sharing stories and showing support for diversity, the event proved to be encouraging and inspirational. Thank you William Allen Gay Straight Alliance for inviting the Lehigh Valley AFSP to join in!
