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