TONIGHT: Dr. Rachel Levine to Speak at Day of Silence Event at Penn
Tomorrow, April 17th, is National Day of Silence. The movement, founded by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) in 1996, is the largest student-led effort of its kind. It happens on the third day of every April, when students take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.
So I guess that makes today National Day of Silence Eve—which deserves recognition of its own, don’t ya think? UPenn is marking the occasion with their second-annual, two-part Day of Service / Night of Raucous event. It all starts this evening at 5 pm, when Dr. Rachel Levine, who was recently named by Governor Tom Wolf as his physician general, will give a keynote address in Houston Hall’s Class of ‘49 Auditorium at 3417 Spruce Street. Dinner will be provided.
Later on, the party moves to Stir Lounge for the second part of the affair, Night of Raucous, which will be just as it sounds: a night to get the drinking, dancing and merry-making out of our systems before we shut our traps for a full day tomorrow. Wristbands and drink tickets will be given away at the Day of Silence event at Penn.
