Day of Silence at UT-Martin

UT-Martin ALLIES' Day of Silence observances were mentioned in the Jackson Sun today. The event draws attention to the discrimination, hate, and violece experienced by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. The Day of Silence came soon after the faculty senate failed to adopt an amendment to the school's nondiscrimination policy that would have included sexual orientation and gender identity.

The event was sponsored by the Tennessee Equality Project Foundation.
