Thurs., Jan. 22 | 4:00PM | CCC Comunidad Room
Kari Hong, a lawyer and adjunct professor at the University of San Francisco Law School, presents "Cause the Bible Tells Me So: A Legal History of Religion and the Institution of Marriage." In this talk, Ms. Hong will look at the legal history of marriage and examine the ways in which religion has shaped social and legal restrictions over who may enter and exit the institution of marriage. From early Christianity's emphasis on celibacy to the Protestant Reformation's rejection of the Church's restrictions, legal definitions have been tied to religious views over who may and may not be married. In the United States, the concepts of coverature, anti-miscegenation laws, no-fault divorce were rooted in religious views and subsequently were altered as social views changed. Viewed from the modern fight over same-sex marriage, the role of religion and the law intersect in ways that show that history truly is prologue.
The Cross-Cultural Center is located on the 2 Fl. of Price Center East. For more information call 858.534.9689 or email email@example.com.

GABNET SD BOOKCLUB AND DISCUSSION, "IN THE TIME OF THE BUTTERFLIES"
Tues., Dec. 16 | 6:00pm | Women's Center
In 1994, Julia Alvarez brought the Mirabals' story to an American audience through her novel In the Time of the Butterflies. Alvarez's connections to this story run deep, since her own parents were involved in the underground movement and fled to America before being arrested. She does not write a history or a biography, however. She fictionalizes the Mirabal sisters and depicts their lives through the voices she creates for them. She even includes Dedé Mirabal, the only sister to survive, as a voice of the present reflecting on the past. Through her characters, she stresses the need to remember the past, even times of great pain, while also striving for happiness in the present and the future. Perhaps more importantly, she stresses the need to see heroes not as superhuman, but as people who fight their own fears in order to fight injustice.

THE FLOR CONTEMPLACION STORY FILM SCREENING
Wed., Dec. 10 | 7:00PM | Bonita Sunnyside Library, 4375 Bonita Rd, Bonita, CA 91902
In 1995, a Filipino maid was executed in Singapore for killing a young co-worker. This true-life drama from the Philippines tells her story. Flor Contemplacion, like many impoverished people, thought she might have a shot at a better life if she worked abroad as a domestic and so took her four much-loved children to Singapore to take a maid's job. Unlike many other servants, Flor was well-treated by her employers. In March 1995, she was suddenly arrested and charged with killing a maid and the little boy the maid was caring for. Unfortunately, all evidence points to Flor's innocence. After her hanging, the tale behind the tragedy is revealed.
