Humanities Advocacy Day 2019

Humanities Advocacy Day features a performance and workshop by community group #VigilantLOVE, as well as a student-faculty panel on immigration and incarceration.

Drawing connections between the rise in Islamophobia in recent years, with the incarceration of Japanese Americans, as well as current immigration and incarceration policies that target communities of color, #VigilantLOVE’s mission is to create spaces for connection, solidarity work and grassroots movement in the greater L.A. Area.

11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. #VigilantLOVE performance and workshop

12:15 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. Reception with light refreshments

12:45 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. Student-faculty panel on immigration and incarceration organized by the Dean’s Student Council

Sponsored by the College of Humanities. Co-sponsored by the Office of Community Engagement, the Office of Graduate Studies, Civil Discourse and Social Change, the Women’s Research and Resource Center, and Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies
