Day of Remembrance Event
On Tuesday, February 19, JASU and the AACC will be hosting a Day of Remembrance Event at the AACC from 5 pm to 8 pm, with dinner provided.
 
Set on the anniversary of the controversial WWII-era Executive Order 9066, the Day of Remembrance is meant to raise awareness about Japanese American incarceration during World War II. The Day of Remembrance will also educate attendees on actions they can take to safeguard civil rights of similarly marginalized groups today.
 
The event will draw parallels between past and current events and the red flags we are seeing today, in the hopes that we can learn from the mistakes of the past to build a better future.
 
We will be showing a short film, having a panel discussion/Q+A session with speakers, and concluding with a networking reception. Food will be provided at no cost.
 
5:00-5:10: Opening
5:10-6:00: Screening of "Resistance at Tule Lake"

Seeking Bilingual Students
The Yale Interpretation Network (YIN) is seeking bilingual students and employees interested in making a difference in the New Haven area.

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 results will help guide Yale’s strategies for addressing sexual misconduct. The strength of those findings, though, will depend on you!  Please, check your inbox and fill out the survey.  (The links are unique, so each person can find the email in their own inbox.) Yale will report on the results in Fall 2019.  For more details about the survey and Yale’s resources, please see smr.yale.edu.

"COMPLICIT - ERASURE OF THE BODY"
Hello artists, musicians, writers, and creators of all kinds,

Nasty Women CT is partnering with Yale Divinity School to host their third annual exhibition, Complicit- Erasure of the Body.” Additional local organizations-- like Black Lives Matter New Haven, New Haven Pride Center, Elm City Collective, and more-- are also collaborating in this exhibition reflecting on sexual violence, complicity, and faith. Please, see the exhibition proposal:
 
"In light of the #MeToo Movement, and as we think about the grey areas of this movement against sexual violence and harassment, we invite you to express how acts of complicity remove one’s voice, erase the body and sense of self from the emotional, the spiritual and the physical."

This is an open-call to the greater New Haven area, and we are accepting works of all kinds. Please, submit to the exhibition and forward this message to your friends, neighbors, faith communities, or colleagues! Submissions are due February 15th and artwork will need to be dropped off at Yale Divinity School at the end of February. Physical artwork should approximate four square feet (or less), but we are also hoping to receive music, poetry, dances, and other kinds of creative endeavors! Also, mark your calendars for the opening reception in the evening on March 8th at Yale Divinity School! For more information, see:
