Silence is Violence

Silence is Violence

A voice silenced is a thought, feeling, belief or ideal killed. Come to the University of Utah’s LGBT Awareness Week’s Day of Silence commemoration to hear junior high, high school and college students break the silence about violence and discrimination against LGBT youth. For the weekend, help raise awareness for a cure for multiple sclerosis at the 21st Annual MS Walk 2010. Then, later, stop by City Hall for updates on efforts for historic preservation in Salt Lake City.

2010 MS Walk
Saturday, April 17

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that may never go away, but that doesn’t mean people should ignore it. With 400,000 Americans diagnosed and 200 added to that number weekly, MS is impacting more people all the time. Prove your support for treatments and research that could help those diagnosed live better lives or, perhaps, even find a cure. The event is a simple one- to three-mile walk for people of all ages and abilities.
