April Awareness Month Events

For those of you who don’t know, April is the Asian/Asian American, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, and Queer Awareness Month at Wesleyan. That is a whole lot to be aware about and the April Planning Committee wants to make sure you know that there are still many events this month centered around or celebrating these identities.

Here are the events coming up. Since there are so many, I had to put a bunch after the jump. Check em out!
