Hi, all!

Happy belated Mid-Autumn Festival to those who celebrate! Katharine had a great time at CASA's Mid-Autumn Mooncake Festival (glowsticks included). As autumn settles in, we hope you all stay warm and in good health. (Get your flu shots!) If you already miss the sun, drop by any of the events we have this week for a little picker-upper! 

We've been working on updating the look of our newsletter. Center hours and Dean Yee's open office hours are listed at the bottom of this newsletter. There are also links to our Facebook, Instagram, website, and e-store. Let us know what you think!

 

Lots of good vibes,

The AACC is co-hosting a tea and dinner with Pauli Murray College featuring Vivian Yee. 

Vivian Yee is a national immigration correspondent at the New York Times, writing about immigration policy under the Trump administration and its impact, immigrant communities, and changing attitudes around immigration. She has also covered the Parkland and Las Vegas shootings, New York politics, New York City neighborhoods and crime, and too many hurricanes to count. She joined the Times in 2012 after graduating from Yale, where she was the editor in chief of the Yale Daily News.

The tea is on Thursday, October 4th from 4-6 pm. Dinner afterwards is at the AACC from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Martabak Manis Cook-Out
Spring Arising Cabaret

In light of the recent Dramat casting cycle of the Fall Mainstage musical Spring Awakening, a coalition of students of color and trans students are launching our own cabaret titled Spring Arising.

In an open-mic style, Spring Arising will showcase songs from the musical featuring a cast of exclusively trans folks and POC.

The mission of the production is to celebrate the talents and resilience of trans and POC communities. We aim to highlight the nuances and wealth of experiences that we bring to an artistic world which actively excludes us.

Spring Arising will require minimal commitment in terms of rehearsal times - the bulk of rehearsals and performances will occur during the week of October 28th through November 3rd in the Hopper Cabaret. We will host an introductory meeting on October 4th in the La Casa Cultural Center Gallery from 6-8pm.

If you are interested in getting involved as a performer, musician, stage manager, or lighting designer, please come to the meeting or email springarising18@gmail.com.

In solidarity we stand!
