 The Other Pipeline: Tracking Working Class
 Youth into the Military
  Thursday | April 15 | 4:30-6pm
  Cross-Cultural Center

 Access to higher education becomes limited to a
 fortunate few, the majority of working class
 youth face a future of low paying jobs, prison, or
 the military. Military recruiters are adept to
 pitching their product in what is most often a deceptive package;
 many of the promises made are never kept and young people find that
 they have signed up for something they never expected. According to
 the Pentagon's own studies, most youth enlist for the promised
 educational benefits. As one character in the movie "Jarhead" replied
 when asked why he joined the Marines: "I got lost on my way to
 college." Professor Jorge Mariscal will be talking about recruiting
 techniques and what you can do to demilitarize our schools.

 Mia Mingus is a a queer disabled woman of color, 
 South Korean transracial adoptee, organizer and
 one of the Co-Executive Directors of SPARK
 Reproductive Justice Now in Atlanta, Georgia.
 Through her work on disability, race, reproductive
 justice, gender, sexuality, and transracial
 adoption, she recognizes the urgency and the
 barriers for oppressed communities to work
 together and build alliances for liberation. Though her activism
 changes and evolves, her roots remain firmly planted in ending sexual
 violence. (from angryasianmen.com)

 research in the area of Whiteness in a European context. This will be a
