CCC Library

Derogatory words towards women and LGBT folks are used so frequently in today's society, that it has become part of our every day language. Why is that? Where does it come from? How can we put a stop to these daily triggers? Please join me in discussing this conflict on November 17th from 12-1pm in the Cross-Cultural Center Library.


A corresponding art project consisting of two mannequins (male and female) will be showcased at each of the Campus Community Centers. Please stop by to view the art pieces and share your responses . Women's Center on November 14, LGBT RC on November 15 and at the CCC from November 16-17.
