UIS Celebrates Day of Silence Friday, April 22, 2016

On the annual Day of Silence, hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take some form of a vow of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBTQ bullying and harassment to organize a change for their schools and their community. At UIS the, LGBTQA, Latino and Hispanic, differently-abled, and other minority communities of UIS stand together. Please visit the Day of Silence page for more information.
