Day of Silence today

from :
The Day of Silence, a project of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in collaboration with the United States Student Association (USSA), is a student-led day of action where those who support making anti-LGBT bias unacceptable in schools take a day-long vow of silence to recognize and protest the discrimination and harassment -- in effect, the silencing -- experienced by LGBT students and their allies.

I was kind of surprised not to've seen anything in here about this yet, as the ASUW GBLTC is participating in the Day of Silence today on campus, but there was an article in yesterday's Times about it.
In any event, thanks to everyone on campus (like the livejournaler featured in that article) trying to make a difference.  Keep up the good work!
