PROTEST DIVERSITY BUDGET CUTS!
Mon., March 16 | 10AM | Chancellor's Complex
Different programs and departments on campus have been getting budget cuts. Diversity spaces like OASIS (Office of Academic Support & Instructional Services) have been getting their funds cut at disproportionate rates compared to other spaces. Other spaces are at risk as well. Why is it that diversity initiatives are first on the list to get cut? Why does administration claim to put diversity first, yet cuts funds that help create diversity? Come show support for diversity initiatives, programs, departments, and spaces.

PAT WASHINGTON March 4 & 11 | 5-8PM | Malcolm X Library (5148 Market Street, San Diego, CA 92114)
Eastern Congo is caught in an epidemic of appalling sexual violence, as militias use rape as a military tactic to destroy communities and exert control over natural resources. Used as a weapon of war, sexual violence and rape exist on a scale seen nowhere else in the world. Often successful in its intent to destroy and exterminate, rape is causing the destruction of women, their families, and their communities. Congo's women are the backbone of Congolese society and are the country's best, brightest hope. Yet efforts to protect women and girls in the Congo are failing spectacularly. Each day that goes by without action, thousands more Congolese are displaced or killed and countless women and girls are raped. Enough is enough. We hope that you will join us. http://www.raisehopeforcongo.org
4th ANNUAL QUEER PEOPLE OF COLOR CONFERENCE
April 3 & 4 at UC Davis | qpocc.webs.com
The theme of this year's conference is "Building Communities through Art, Action, and Resistance." With this theme, one of our many goals includes finding alternate, new, fun, and exciting ways to resist societal norms that are imposed on LGBTQI communities of color, through embracing the arts, creation, action, and building community. We highly encourage workshop proposals that encompass such a theme- that break away from traditional ways of thinking and embrace somewhat unconventional, nonconformist ideals of community.
