AIDS Testing Information Session

Students –

Tomorrow, March 11, 2014 from 2-5pm The Equality Alliance is hosting an informational session on AIDS Testing.

We will be meeting in room 102B in the Cartersville Student center.

The epidemic of AIDS comes with a lot of stigma. With this event we hope to dispel a lot of the stigma, to educate people on the resources available for the prevention of, testing for and treat of HIV and AIDS.

In addition to our speaker, Jamie Potts, we will be giving away free candy and condoms.

We hope to see you there!

** This event was formerly going to be an AIDS testing, but unfortunately we weren’t able to make that happen, we decided to continue on with a discussion on AIDS and AIDS Testing, and we hope to see you there **

Dr. Bettina Love: “Hip Hop Feminism” -March 12 at 2pm

As a part of the Women’s History Month celebration, the Diversity Committee and the Office of Student Life present:

Dr. Bettina Love: “Hip Hop Feminism”

March 12, A216 (Student Center) at 2pm

Bettina L. Love is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Theory & Practice at the University of Georgia. Her research focuses on the ways in which urban youth negotiate Hip Hop music and culture to form social, cultural, and political identities. A continuing thread of her scholarship involves exploring new ways of thinking about urban education and culturally relevant pedagogical approaches for urban learners. More specifically, she is interested in transforming urban classrooms through the use of non-traditional educational curricula (e.g., Hip Hop pedagogy, media literacy, Hip Hop feminism, and popular culture). Building on that theme, Dr. Love also has a passion for studying the school experiences of queer youth, along with race and equality in education.

See her in action her with a 5th grade class at the Kendezi School in Atlanta, GA:

Multicultural/Diversity Movie Series

Multicultural/Diversity Movie Series
Where: CARTERSVILLE — Room 328
When: MONDAY, MARCH 3RD, 3:30pm-5:30pm

Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes
 

“Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes provides a riveting examination of manhood, sexism, and homophobia in hip-hop culture.

Director Byron Hurt, former star college quarterback, longtime hip-hop fan, and gender violence prevention educator, conceived the documentary as a “loving critique” of a number of disturbing trends in the world of rap music. He pays tribute to hip-hop while challenging the rap music industry to take responsibility for glamorizing destructive, deeply conservative stereotypes of manhood.

The documentary features revealing interviews about masculinity and sexism with rappers such as Mos Def, Fat Joe, Chuck D, Jadakiss, and Busta Rhymes, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, and cultural commentators such as Michael Eric Dyson and Beverly Guy-Sheftall.”

Media Education Films. (n.d.). Hip -hop; Beyond beats and rhymes. Retrieved from        http://www.mediaed.org/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=226

This is the first of series of films to be shown on campus in hopes to inspire critical thinking about the social, political, and cultural impact of American mass media. – See more at: http://www.mediaed.org/

A discussion of the themes and key points of the film will be held after the viewing. 

Refreshments will be served

URGENT: HB 1023 Hearing Rescheduled (From Georgia Equality)


Jessica, 

Over the past couple of days, many of you have followed HB 1023 closely along with us. 

We can now report that the hearing for HB 1023 has been RESCHEDULED.
Tomorrow morning (February 26) the bill will be heard in the House Judiciary Sub-Committee at 7:00 AM in room 606 of the Coverdell Legislative Office Building (across Mitchell St. from the Capitol).

We had an awesome show of support on Monday and want everyone who is available to come to the capitol and be present for tomorrow’s hearing. Georgia Equality will be working with several attorneys through the night that are well versed in this area to make sure we have the best possible testimony at the hearing in the morning. Because of the technical nature of this bill and its amendments we are not encouraging anyone who’s not had an opportunity to review the amended language in advance to testify at tomorrow’s hearing.


Please be present if you can make it!
