Brave Space: Do We Need A New Paradigm for "Checking" Each Other?bravespace
By: Edwina Welch

Since the beginning of the quarter, I have seen a disturbing trend concerning how we communicate and "check" each other. For example, some of us may feel triggered and excluded hearing or being addressed as "You Guys", which is usually meant to address/include everyone, though for some of us, has historical, exclusive, gendered implications.

Watch What You Saywatchwhatyousay

Thursday | November 17 | 12pm

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.

Breather Series: Yoga 

Friday | November 18 | 12pm     

CCC Comunidad

Please join us for a FREE hour of vinyasa yoga, a faster-paced "flowy" type of yoga that focuses on moving with the breath. It's a good starting point for those just starting out, for those who assume that it's boring and slow, and for folks who say they don't want to try it because they're not flexible enough. Bring your yoga mat if you have one. Yoga mats and water will be provided. For more information contact violetag@ucsd.edu.
