VC Celebrates Diversity 3/29, 4/12-13: dance, speakers, authors, poets, film, free food!

March 27, 2017

You are invited to this year’s Cesar Chavez Event at Ventura College hosted by M.E.Ch.A on Weds. March 29 starting at 430pm in Guthrie Hall. The event is free and open to the public and Danza Azteca Xochipili will start the evening right outside in the quad area plus free food from Mom and Pops restaurant will be provided while provisions last.

Recent executive actions have caused a time of uncertainty and genuine fear for many on our campus and in local communities. With threats of deportation faculty, staff and students need to know how to navigate in this new environment. Guest presenters include Attorney Gabriella Navarro Busch, who will lay out the legal conditions we are facing and Leo Martinez, a local community activist who will discuss how students can proactively protect themselves and their families. Please join us in examining these and other questions about the new administrative challenges.

Earlier in the day, at 330pm Ventura College’s Sociology Club  will show and discuss The Illusionists a campus event in MCW 110. This new documentary film is about global commercialization of beauty ideals. They will also have a food truck with FREE food on a first-come, first served basis.

We are also busy planning Ventura College’s second annual Culture in Diversity Festival on April 12 and 13 from 930am-9pm. Wednesday highlights include evening readings by Alice Bag, Tony Fletcher, and Zhena Muzyka. Thursday’s highlights include a Poetry Slam by area and VC student poets plus Richard Blanco from 1-2pm and Donna Granata on women artists and activists from 3-4pm.

If you’re a VC student and you’d like to participate in the Poetry Slam, submit your poem for consideration by Friday March 31!
