UNCG PRIDE!, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Transgender and Straight Allied Student Association, will hold their Hate Crimes Awareness Day on Wednesday, September 14, 2005, from 11am to 3pm at the Fountain Plaza in front of the Atrium on the UNCG campus. Hate Crimes Awareness Day will bring attention and create awareness concerning hate crimes. Although the Hate Crimes Awareness Day recognizes all types of hate crimes, the group will be focusing on hate crimes which affect gyas, lesbian, bisexuals, and transgender, queer and questioning individuals. According to UNCG PRIDE!: "Although UNCG PRIDE! recognizes that hate crimes affect many different people, we focus on hate crimes directed toward gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning individuals, as a part of our Organizational Mission and Purpose." UNCG PRIDE!'s Hate Crimes Awareness Day will feature a "Wall of Hate." Students will be able to write anything on the wall which symbolizes hate. At the end of the day, the wall will be torn down, symbolizing the end of hate. For more information: http://pride.uncg.edu
