The GLSEN organization, has decided to make King's murder one of the central themes of this year's annual Day of Silence on April 25.
 
DAY OF SILENCE, April 25, 2008: "This year, we're going to incorporate, within the Day of Silence, a way for students to remember Lawrence King and sort of use it as a day to honor him and to bring attention to what happened," said GLSEN spokesperson Daryl Presgraves. "The overall themes will include King and the immediate need to address anti-LGBT harassment. If ever there were a sign that schools need to realize how far such harassment can go, and why it's important to address it now, it's Lawrence King."
