Friday, April 24 All day

Day of Silence/Night of Noise Triangle Alliance is celebrating the annual Day of Silence. This year, the national Day of silence will be on April 17th, but Western will be observing the day on April 24th to best accommodate our staff's needs. During Day of Silence, people take a vow of silence for the day to encourage others to address the problems of anti-LGBTQ behavior by illustrating the silencing effects of bullying and harassment on LGBTQ students and those perceived to be LGBTQ. This year, Triangle Alliance will be recognizing Day of Silence from 8am to 6pm, followed by Triangle Alliance's annual Night of Noise, held in the Mt. Jefferson room in Valsetz. As participating in Day of Silence calls for people to take a vow of silence for this time frame, we are asking that those not observing Day of Silence refrain from making participants engage in communication. Please respect those choosing to silence themselves by not provoking them into, or forcing them to speak. If you would like to participate in this year's Day of Silence, Day of Silence packets will be available at the WUC info desk and the RSC desk. In these packets will be information cards on what Day of Silence represents, and stick-on nametags stating your participation in the event.
