  • Image preview 6:00pm - 8:00pm: Screening of Jose Antonio Vargas’ film, “Documented” and Panel

    In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in an essay published in the The New York Times Magazine.

    Documented chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist; and his journey inward as he reconnects with his mother, whom he has not seen in person in over 20 years. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and reception.

  • Image preview 6:30pm - 8:00pm: Action Tools for Allies

    Microaggressions are the commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental insults, both intentional and unintentional, that communicate negative slights to a person or group, based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion (Sue, 2010). They can have profound cumulative mental and physical impacts on individuals and institutional climate.

    This 90 minute workshop will introduce participants to microaggressions. We will also practice and develop fundamental skills for recognizing and interrupting  microaggressions on campus, in the classroom and in ourselves.
