Film Diversity Town Hall Meeting

From Film Majors, Minors and Prospective Film Studies Students:

Please join us this Thursday, April 27th at 5:30pm in Judd Hall Room 116 to discuss diversity within the Film Department. This will be a public meeting open to the entire student body and faculty. In this meeting we hope to reiterate our suggestions for diversity and announce our plans for moving forward. We then hope to open the meeting up to discussion from attendees. Our main goal of this meeting is to gain a clearer understanding of the department’s initiatives to achieve diversity and for us to be able to publicly and candidly clarify our own hopes for the future of diversity within the film department. We hope for this discussion to be a meeting with multiple points of view, so please encourage your friends and faculty members to participate. This open discussion will lead to mutual understanding and change for the better.

See you there!

From Second Stage:

Thursday, April 27th from 7:00 – 8:30 PM

Malcolm X House Basement

When We Can’t Tell What’s Human is a play that explores whether or not a “healthy relationship with food” is even possible. On a hot summer day in New York City, a food blogger meets a cab driver who’s intimately familiar with limited food access and the food industry’s exploitation of migrant workers. The blogger, whose marriage is falling apart, encounters the man’s own experience of abandonment and loss when she steps into his cab. A three-course meal will served during the show: each course setting the scene for the next act.

After the play, join us for a discussion about food and social justice issues with our guest panelists, including Professor Hatch, Professor Neyra Kim Thibodeau, and the Soulfull Project.

Take Back The Night 2017

From Wesleyan Students for Consent and Communication:

No one should fear the night.. or the day.
Shatter the Silence. Stop the Violence.

Take Back the Night is a global movement to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual abuse and all other forms of sexual violence. This year, we will march from Olin at 7 to Foss for some student performances. At 8:30, we will have our first speak out circle on the CFA green, where survivors or friends can share their stories of sexual violence in a safe and non-judgmental space. After the speak out circle, the group will circle back to Andrus for a second speak out circle. There will be a debriefing session in the DFC afterwards.

Join us for poster making at Community Engagement House Wednesday, April 26 at 4:30pm!
