DAY OF SILENCE, TUES., 5/3

The QSA (Queer Straight Alliance) and Wellness will host a Day of Silence on Tuesday, May 3rd.  This is a day when students can elect to practice silence throughout the day in a act of solidarity with LGBTQ students and people across the world that feel silenced due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Any student practicing silence should have a little badge and/or piece of rainbow tape over their mouths to indicate their pledge. If it's critical that they speak due to a test or presentation in your class, then they should speak for that, otherwise, please honor the intention of the day.
