A bus will leave Yale at 11 AM on return to campus by 5 PM. Lunch is provided. Get on the bus and support ER&M! Sign up here!!

Beyond a research symposium, this event will serve as an opportunity to present and cultivate innovative scholarship reflective of knowledge production on our campuses and in communities and for the service of society. The event is intended to commemorate the creation and development of Ethnic Studies as a field, allowing students to engage with the work of their peers, and to draw rich connections between different methodologies, approaches, and sites of research. Through these dialogues, we aspire to demonstrate the collective impact and unity of our shared work in Ethnic Studies.

Seder
The Jewish diaspora sees Jews scattered all around the world, on every continent except possibly Antarctica. Each year, Passover honors precisely that history of dispersion and resistance, but many of us have stories and memories of more recent diasporic experiences to draw from. Join us on the evening of Saturday the 20th for a Seder by and for Jews of color that celebrates our diversity and resilience in diaspora and under colonization, as we eat, drink, and draw from both the traditional Haggadah and modern texts. Come bring light to the vast array of experiences Jewish people have, as we discuss subjects relating to our varied backgrounds, identities, and traditions. All are welcome, regardless of identity or religious background!

Please sign up here (it’s free if you’re off the meal plan!), and email ikenna.maduno@yale.edu or sarah.hamerling@yale.edu with any questions.

We are hoping that this exhibition (opening on April 21st) will help showcase different perspectives on migration; we will also be fundraising for donations to go toward different refugee/immigration organizations (organizations TBD). If you are at all interested in participating, we'd love to have you fill out this interest form: https://goo.gl/forms/eQMggPIKFFCpIDZN2.
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 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.
