Day Of Silence 2020 [Official Comp]

Hi Hops!

As some of you may know, each year on the second Friday of April, the GLSEN hosts a Day Of Silence. A little bit of background on this:
The GLSEN stands for the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network and is an organization that fights to stop harmful anti-LGBTQ sentiments and actions, such as buIIying in schools. Each year, they hold a protest to this negativity in which Igbtq students and allies don’t speak for the whole day. This protest is concluded by Break the Silence, an event in which people can share their stories.

I think this is a really heartwarming thing to do, because this stuff goes around a lot – more than many people would realize. I have personally been affected by it, as have people I know and care about. That’s why I started participating, and I wanted to extend this a bit to Hopscotch. I know a lot of y’all are either allies or in the community, and it’d be awesome if we all did this together this year.
It may not be possible to stay quiet for the entire day, or not post here at all, but there are so many other ways in which we can provide support and spread awareness.

Which is why I’d like to welcome you to the Day of Silence 2020 coding competition.

For this competition, create a Hopscotch project either that spreads awareness about the Day Of Silence or is relating to the LGBTQ community. Include #SilenceSpeaksVolumes in your project title, and use at least one pride flag and one of the following emojis: :heart: :orange_heart: :yellow_heart: :green_heart: :blue_heart: :purple_heart:
Projects are due on April 27th 2020
