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.

The event is a simple one- to three-mile walk for people of all ages and abilities.
