An Open Letter to the President of City College

May 6, 2015

President Lisa,

Today, on May 6th at 12pm, you were supposed to be present for a meeting, that you had called, with the organizers of the Gender Resource Campaign, the Undergraduate Student Government, and key members of the administration. This meeting was a culmination of our struggle to establish a Gender Resource Center for the survivors of gender-based violence on the campus of City College during which we were to discuss next steps in the creation of a physical space and the services that will be provided. This meeting’s date and time was moved multiple times, and despite the uncertainty and disadvantages that this has caused us, we are present here today.

Patriarchy in Activist Spaces II

ONE YEAR LATER – the conversation continues:

Patriarchy in Activist Spaces II
As we continue to grow from moments to movements: anti-imperial, anti-capitalist movements do not necessarily mean the politics of the participants are anti-sexist and anti-racist. How do we comfort each other and check each other in a community of activists united to bring down structures of capitalism, imperialism and colonization? How do we as women educate each other and support movements that may hinder our energy and collective power if there are perpetrators of the same oppression organizing together?

Join us as we facilitate a circle discussion where we address these questions and more!

***Allies are welcomed, but we encourage women of color, queer people, gender non-conforming people, and trans* people to join us!!!***

WHEN: Saturday, December 6th from 2-5pm
WHERE: The Ya-Ya Network
