The National Day of Silence (observed elsewhere on April 11th) is a day where supporters of the LGBTQA community take a vow of silence (for a minute, an hour, or the whole day) to raise awareness about anti-LGBTQ bias, discrimination, and violence.

Look for representatives from the Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity, and the Queer Straight Alliance, to be sharing information and opportunities for you to participate!
