A Day of Silence at Washburn University

A protest against hate crimes against certain students didn't bring chants and yells.

Instead, students at Washburn University were among those taking part in a national day of silence.

Participants hope to end discrimination and harassment in school of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender student.

Students take a vow to not speak for 12-hours.

The event includes a diversity rally from six to eight thirty Friday night on the Memorial Union lawn featuring bands and informational booths.
