April 22 Lincoln County Proclamation of Upstanders’ Week
For many years Lincoln County Commissioners have proclaimed the 4th week in April as Upstanders’ Week in recognition of PFLAG’s long-time commitment to bully prevention, LGBTQ community education, and support for marginalized LGBTQ youth and adults. Upstanders Week is timed to coordinate with the National Day of Silence on the 4th Friday of April.

April 24 25th Annual Day of Silence
On Friday, April 24th, thousands of students across the country will be participating in the 25th Annual Day of Silence – which will now be a virtually-centered event. Day of Silence is a national student led protest of the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people. Join us as we take over social media channels to continue our activism in fighting for LGBTQ inclusion and dignity of LGBTQ students! Click here to sign up now to let us know we can count on you to participate in 2020’s Day of Silence.
