Coming up at the Campus Community Centers
Wed., June 3 | 6-8PM | LGBT Resource Center Conference Room
Have you ever felt silenced, angry, or fed up in your experiences at the Resource Center? This conscious and critical program will give you a chance to speak up on these issues in very healing ways. So often there is a tendency to only focus on the positive while putting a "band-aid" on the things that are painful. If you have been triggered by the overwhelming sense of whiteness, cisgender privilege, ableism, maleness, and/or many other critical issues in the space, this program is for you to speak up! We will challenge the silence around these issues in hopes to leave this space and this year more fulfilled. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Michelle.

Wed., June 3 | 12PM | LGBT Resource Center, Conference Room
Will you be in San Diego for the summer and want to stay connected to the Resource Center? Join us at the planning meetings for UCSD's participation in San Diego's annual LGBT Pride parade! The first meeting will be Wednesday June 3rd at 12:00pm at the LGBT Resource Center.

Boxed In: the UC system's ethnicity representation 
- from the blog Racialicious
"Last March, several Middle Eastern UCLA student groups began a lobby to expand the University of California application ethnicity check boxes to include ethnicities such as Arab, Persian, Afghan, etc. It's mind-boggling that the UC system would still not have up-to-date ethnicity representation on its applications, especially since California has high concentrations of West Asian diasporas in California ..." read the whole article!
