All Day Sexual Assault Awareness Month (Multi-Day Event)
Activities will occur all month in Student Affairs
All Day Day of Silence
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:

9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History"

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War.

Come and stop by the Office of Diversity Services (Archer 481) on Thursday mornings from 9AM to 11AM for coffee hour! Enjoy free bagels, snacks, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.

The Religious Case for Equality"(Beacon). Contrary to the myth that the Bible prohibits homosexuality (the myth of "God vs. Gay"), Michaelson shows how the handful of Biblical verses sometimes used against LGBT people, are ambiguous, and subject to interpretation.
