Black Hills State University members of the student organization 10% Society, will take a vow of silence on Friday, April 15, in a nationwide effort to bring attention to anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender bullying and harassment that silences the voices of youth across the nation.
Members will be taking a vow of silence to echo the silence of those who face bullying and harassment every day because of their sexuality. The 10% society asks that those interested in participating wear red to show support.
This day of silence includes all avenues of communication including talking, texting, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media.
An information table will be set up in the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union with more information on bullying and the Day of Silence. Learn more at www.dayofsilence.org.
