Silence is remembrance

Friday, April 21


The Day of Silence is to remember victims of anti-lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual (LGTB) violence. Participants will stay silent friday on Friday, April 21, to remember the voices that have been silenced forever.

A gathering of participants will meet at lunch in the annex quad. Any student who is interested in participating can pick up a card and sticker in E-3. Supporters who cannot remain silent (i.e. staff) may pick up a sticker to show their support also. Ms. Vanessa Walling-Sisi, Gay Student Alliance (GSA) Club adviser will be giving out materials through Friday, April 21.

Teachers are encouraged to show support by wearing a sticker and pin, but also by understanding why participating students may not be speaking in class. They will all be told that if a teacher requires them to speak, they must break their silence and respect the teacher’s requirement.
