“Rally Now” Columbia University
Me and Angela Davis!!
I saw her speak at this panel called “Carceral Politics in Palestine and Beyond: Gender, Vulnerability, Prison” and got to chat with her afterwards.
(a couple people who’ve seen this picture have asked me what’s on my shirt, it says “you are nothing without feminist art”)
Columbia University’s ROOTEd (Respecting Ourselves and Others Through Education) is currently seeking a panelist to speak on the topic: “THE NEVERENDING STORY: CONTINUOUS ALLYSHIP.” We’ll be addressing the following questions: Why do people choose to ally themselves with specific communities? What motivates people in their allyship?
The event would be a sit-down dinner and panel where we are having community organizers and activists to come speak and share their experiences and stories as well as interact with the audience.
The event is taking place THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 7th from 5PM to 7PM at Barnard College’s Event Oval (118th and Broadway, take the 1 train to 116th St. — Columbia University station). Panelists receive a free catered dinner and we are willing to cover travel expenses as well as a small honorarium.

As you may or may not know, CU Radical CUNTS recently held a discussion titled: “The People and the Protectors: Beyond the Bars of the Criminal Justice System”
Here is a brief list of resources that was handed out at the end of the meeting for people to learn more and to get involved with…
A notice to students of Columbia College:
If the best response you can come up with to the news that President Obama is speaking at Barnard College’s Class Day, is to complain about how he’s ‘once again’ ‘snubbing’ ‘the College,’ you need to reevaluate a few things, namely:
1. your sense of entitlement,
2. your actual receptivity to a political gesture supporting women in a time of incredible far-right attacks on women’s health and women’s ability to engage in public discourse,
3. your incessant presumption that ‘the College’ is all of which the undergraduate university is comprised. H-E-L-L-O!?
Nutshell: get over yourselves.
Should the University reassess its approach to Black History Month?

Columbia University National Undergraduate Film Festival - Reflecting and Rewatching
Last night was Columbia University’s National Undergraduate Film Festival, an event that I have helped plan for the last semester(/year). It is sort of a cheesy story but it was exactly at this time a year ago I had an epiphany of sorts and decided to be a filmmaker, inspired by the films that I had seen that night. I wrote my first script that summer.
I wanted to share a link to the the film that received the Audience Choice Award, Best Acting Award and Best Picture Award.
Support student films.
(I will try to post some of the other films from the festival as soon as I can find them/they become available).
