Hope everyone enjoyed their short lived Thanksgiving break!
Here comes the last push to the end of the semester….
1) World A.I.D.S Day events
a. The A.I.D.S. Quilt
i. We will be displaying the A.I.D.S. quilt in the
ii. We will have signage by the quilt explaining the history as well as a plug for our group.
iii. There will be a lock box that we will use to collect donations for Ashley’s organization “The A.I.D.S Museum”
b. “A.I.D.S. & Art”
i. The artwork of Nicole Margaretta will be shown in the Student Activity Space Lobby of the
ii. We will be hosting an event on Wednesday where Nicole will be talking about her work from in the Student Activity Space.
iii. We’ll have $100 worth of food to purchase from Food Emporium that day so I’m gonna need some help with purchasing and set up prior to the event…
c. A.I.D.S. Ribbons
i. Hopefully we can muster to make a couple (at least 100)
ii. Allan will purchase some red ribbons and mini clips to make when we meet on Sunday.
2) The New School Free Press
a. On Monday, Dec 3rd we will be meeting, along with Women of Color and other concerned students, about the publication of several New School Free Press articles specifically “Lo Mein, High Maintenance” and “Save the Urinals”
b. These said articles compare Asian Parson’s women as an untapped natural resource for the straight men at Lang, completely ignore the whole concept of gender-neutral facilities altogether, among many other ridiculous things.
c. We’ll be doing a strategizing meeting this Sunday at so as to formulate proper argumentation and logic so that we’re not completely unprepared for the actual meeting on Monday. (I’m gonna be bringing the ribbons with me to the meeting so that we can make the A.I.D.S. ribbons then. Killing two birds with one stone)
d. Harper will be circulating out more emails tomorrow so you won’t miss a beat.
3) Gender-Neutral Housing
a. Here’s the link to the document in case anyone wants to help collaborate on it.
b. There’s a lot of emails still needing to be sent out to various universities but I believe we’ll get it together if not by winter break, then at least by RA Winter Training (early January) when I will be able to get a chance to hand this in to Rob Lutomski directly.
4) Movie nights
a. Sorry guys, but because of the fact that we weren’t able to get a space during this last week and because there’s no way to host an event after Dec 7th (no Student org is allowed to do so), we will be postponing movie nights till next semester.
At the next meeting we’ll recap on Monday’s meeting with the Free Press and also use that time to help set up for the AIDS & Art event later that evening.
Remember tomorrow is World AIDS Day!
Honor those we’ve lost and those who continue to fight!
Here’s to finding a cure so that AIDS can be history.
