#283: Break the Silence!

April 11th, 2014: The LGBTQ* Day of Silence, a day of sober reflection and meditation on the silencing effects of LGBTQ* bullying and violence. On this day and for their part, a small group of ACH fellows put on “Break the Silence,” the goal of which was to not only observe the national holiday but also to celebrate and honor it. In addition to free food and an awesome DJ, the event featured a star-studded panel, which tackled questions involving anything from personal experience to transnational human rights. The four panel members were: Olivia Sanchez, President of the SBU StandUp Charter; Jeremy Marchese, Senior Staff Assistant and advisor for the University Scholars Program; John Martin, President of the SBU LGBTA; and David Piercey, Sanger RHD. Shouts-out to ACH fellows Ella Holme, Estelle Gyimah, Michael Itzkin, Justin Maietta, and Eric Noh for their hard work on this crucial and inspirational event!
