Phone Banking & Fried Dumplings Study Break!
It’s not even reading week, and we’re already planning study breaks! Join RALY, Planned Parenthood, and the AACC Civic & Political Engagement Team for a fun break from studying with fried dumplings, friends, and phone banking for reproductive rights. We’ll be in the AACC (Multipurpose Room and Yung Wing Living Room) from 6-8 pm on Tuesday, April 30. Feel free to come whenever and stay as long as you like!

We will be phone banking on Paid-Family Medical Leave (SB 1 An Act Concerning Paid Family Medical Leave), which is a bill that aims to establish a paid family and medical leave system in Connecticut. You don’t need to have previous phone banking or advocacy experience to attend -- we’ll give you a brief overview when you get here.

** Please bring your laptop if you plan on coming **

We hope that this is one of many collaborative advocacy nights in support of reproductive rights.
Spring Long Night Against Procrastination
Tryna study for finals but can't get work done? Come to the AACC for an ARETHUSA CHEESE PLATTER, puppy videos, and people who will force you to be productive!

RSVP here!

The Long Night Against Procrastination is for students who want to get serious work done before finals. At this event, the Asian American Cultural Center will provide a distraction-free, quiet environment for you to work... along with regular breaks for snacks, stretching and cute animal videos.

Seeking Bilingual Students
The Yale Interpretation Network (YIN) is seeking bilingual students and employees interested in making a difference in the New Haven area. Non-English speakers often face language barriers when seeking services like mental health care and legal assistance. Many organizations would like to accommodate this community but often lack the resources to do so.
YIN provides high-quality, pro-bono interpretation and translation services to bridge the gap between non-English-speaking community members and social services. Time commitment can be anywhere from once a year to once a week, and you can make a significant impact in our community. Please complete this form if you’re interested in participating:
The Reading Resilience Project
The Reading Resilience Project is an initiative to amplify underrepresented voices in library collections. Yale students are encouraged to recommend works by and about people of color, the result of which is an ever-growing crowd-sourced list of books. RRP books will be put on display in Bass Library for the month of February, and you can preview the full book list at:
