 “Reproductive Justice Town Hall”

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

7-9pm

Digital Gym (2921 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego, CA 92104) 

In recent weeks, legislative initiatives across the US have escalated ongoing efforts to limit access to reproductive health care and criminalize the exercise of reproductive autonomy. These draconian measures affect everyone, but they have a disproportionate impact on folx who are poor, immigrants, womxn of color, and trans or GNC.
 
In response, the Critical Gender Studies Program is hosting a Town Hall on Reproductive Rights. Please join reproductive justice activists and scholars of reproductive politics from UCSD and SDSU to share thoughts, strategies, and information at this crucial moment.

 “Desire and Resistance: Unearthing Trans Legacies”

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

7-9pm

Digital Gym (2921 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego, CA 92104) 

In this 90-minute short film program, trans artists address the erasure of rich legacies of trans activism and art by creating artworks that revisit and re-imagine these stories. Mining existing archives and creating new ones, Unearthing Trans Legacies proposes alternative modes of retrieving and disseminating a trans past through an erotic gaze and experiments in form and narrative storytelling. Defiantly looking towards a future of pleasure, sincerity, and beauty; these works place trans sexual expression and resistance in conversation with a non-linear idea of history, that is both real and fabricated, to address how limited evidence of a past shapes our understandings of the present.

This event is sponsored by the LGBT Resource Center, Visual Arts Department, Marshall College, and the Film Studies Program.

#TrustBlackWomen: A Celebration of Women's Joy and Healing

Wednesday, February 14, 2018   
7-9 PM 
 
In September 2017 women from all around the nation gathered in D.C for the first March For Black Women, to denounce the state violence, sexualized violences, murders and brutalization facing all Black women and additionally the disappearances of our girls from their homes and schools. This March, San Diego will have its first March for Black Women, hosted by Black Lives Matter San Diego. As a precursor to this upcoming event, CGS and Black Lives Matter San Diego invites you to an evening full of community, fun, and reflection as we collectively envision a world in which everyone trusts Black women. Since it will also be Valentine’s Day the latter half of the event will include fun interactive stations where we’ll get to show each other and ourselves some much needed love. This event centers the experiences of self-identified Black women, but is open to everyone.

This event is free and open to the public. Bring a friend! 
 
Refreshments will be served.
