PNCA alum, Ebin Lee, was paired with SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW. This is their poster.
Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance in honor of those who have lost their lives for living as themselves. The overwhelming majority of trans* deaths are the murders of people of color. Today, artists celebrate their lives with Trans Day of Resilience.
“Trans Day of Resilience is an art and activism project that recognizes and supports trans women and femmes of color in their lives and leadership, not just in death. It is an extension and reimagining of Transgender Day of Remembrance, the annual event memorializing people (mostly trans women of color) killed by anti-trans violence. Trans Day of Resilience goes beyond remembrance, and uplifts the resilience and power of trans and gender non-conforming communities of color.
Forward Together and visual artist Micah Bazant paired eight trans and gender non-conforming artists with eight organizations across the country doing trans justice work. Although trans and gender non-conforming people of color face disproportionate rates of violence and poverty, they are also thriving and leading movements for social justice. The Trans Day of Resilience art tells those stories of trans power, vision, and leadership.” — http://tdor.co/about/
As the end of the semester approaches, we know that you need lots of quiet time and space to finish up your projects and assignments, or just to chill out for a bit and watch a movie. Did you know that Faculty, Staff, and Students may reserve any of the three study rooms (M4, M5, & M15) on the Library’s Mezzanine level for up to three hours at a time?
You’re always welcome to use the study rooms without reserving them on a first-come-first-serve basis, but if you’d like to set aside time, just email us at email@example.com and let us know which room you’d like and when you’d like it! Each room has tables, chairs, and adjustable lighting.
M5: has a monitor with a VHS player and typewriters.
M4 & M15: have monitors that can be connected to a DVD player (check out from the MRC) or hooked up directly to your laptop with an HDMI cable (which you can check out at the library circ desk).
Best of luck as you wrap up a successful semester!
