Join us at the Finnish Hall for our next General Assembly! Doors open at 7PM; we’ll start promptly at 7:30PM. We’ll have updates from our teams, an invited speaker, and community event announcements, followed by team breakouts and discussions.
This GA will include a focus on women’s issues, in part to commemorate the First Inaugural Women’s Convention in Detroit, which is being organized by the Women’s March planners. This week has also developed into #MeToo week, highlighting sexual harassment as a national issue.
T-Shirts will be available for purchase between 7 and 7:30 PM, immediately before the GA, for $25 cash or $26 credit card. We have sizes ranging from small to 2XL and these shirts run large. We apologize in advance if we run out of the size you want. T-shirts will also be available for sale at the following General Assembly, on November 5.
Our guest speakers are from BHS Stop Harassing, Respect is Part of Research, and Equal Rights Advocates.
BHS Stop Harassing is a group of Berkeley High School students who are working to change the culture surrounding sexual harassment and violence at BHS and beyond. They want Berkeley High to be a model high school where all students feel safe and respected. They seek to spur district administrators and school decision-makers to immediately address shortcomings in the school environment that impede student success insofar as those factors create an unsafe learning environment.
Respect is Part of Research is a group of graduate students at Cal, based in the Physics Department, who organize peer training focused on preventing sexual harassment in academia.
Equal Rights Advocates is a national civil rights organization dedicated to protecting and expanding economic and educational access for women and girls.
