Day of Silence
Start Date: 4/10/2014 All Day
End Date: 4/10/2014

Event Description:
Suffolk University will observe the Annual Day of Silence on April 10th, 2014. The National Day of Silence is a day of action in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. Founded in 1996, the Day of Silence has become the largest single student-led action towards creating safer schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. From the first-ever Day of Silence at the University of Virginia in 1996, to the organizing efforts in over 8,000 middle schools, high schools, colleges and universities across the country in 2008, its textured history reflects its diversity in both numbers and reach. Silence can create change! That’s why every year hundreds of thousands of students across the world take a vow of silence on a Friday in April. This quiet but powerful, student-led action raises awareness about the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination. Strength in numbers. Solidarity in silence. Take the pledge today: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1QrzdN0oM0bxju0dhpUKilAuNMdpaO5r3uP5kAmcpp6o/viewform
