Chewing the Fat with Alexandra Cuerdo
Chewing the Fat with Alexandra Cuerdo, Director of ULAM: Main Dish
Tuesday, April 2, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Whitney Humanities Center Auditorium, 53 Wall St., New Haven, CT 06511
 
ULAM: Main Dish is the first food documentary following the rise of the Filipino food movement via chefs crossing over to the center of the American table. Described by the late food critic Jonathan Gold as “a love letter to Filipino food in America,” ULAM celebrates the power of food movements and their inextricable ties with culture and identity. 
 
Join us at the Whitney Humanities Center for a screening of this film, followed by a moderated conversation between ULAM director Alexandra Cuerdo and Timothy Dwight Head of College Mary Lui. Here are more event details.  
 
This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by the Yale Sustainable Food Program, Timothy Dwight College, the Whitney Humanities Center, KASAMA, the Asian American Cultural Center at Yale, and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration. 
Hate in the USA
There has not been a more urgent time to learn about hate in America. We invite you to come learn more about the history and current status of hate movements in the U.S., especially here in Connecticut with Kate Chance, Outreach Manager of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). She will also discuss the efforts to combat these movements by fighting hate, teaching tolerance, and seeking justice. Professor Douglas NeJaime will also be joining us and commenting on Alliance Defending Freedom specifically.
 
Kate Chance manages the Civil Rights Memorial Center in Montgomery, Alabama, an interpretive center designed to provide visitors to the Civil Rights Memorial with a deeper understanding of the civil rights movement. She also manages the SPLC on Campus program, which provides resources and support for emerging student activists on campuses across the country.
 
Professor Douglas NeJaime is Anne Urowsky Professor of Law at Yale Law School, where he teaches in the areas of family law, legal ethics, law and sexuality, and constitutional law.
 
This event is sponsored by OutLaws, Black Law Students Association, Latinx Law Students Association, Native American Law Students Association, Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, Yale Law Women, Civil Rights Project and American Constitution Society.
 
Pizza lunch will be served.

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: https://guides.library.yale.edu/Reading-Resilience.

To submit a book (or other creative work), use this form: bit.ly/rrpyale.
