On #WorldKindnessDay: Attend a Vigil or Volunteer, hear Indigenous Speakers or “The Crucible”

November 13, 2018

 

Today is #WorldKindnessDay. It sure seems like we need it.

Because many of our district’s students, faculty, and staff have been adversely affected this past week by major fires and a mass shooting, Moorpark College campus will be CLOSED on Tuesday, November 13 and classes have been canceled, while Ventura College and Oxnard College have classes and activities as scheduled including a vigil and other activities today from 10-1pm at VC.

This week, Ventura College also welcomes three guest speakers for Indigenous Speaker Series and offers the fall theater production, The Crucible.

On Wednesday November 14th, at 10:00 AM in Guthrie Hall, Israel Velasquez shares his experience as a Mixtec speaking college student and a professional organizer including the tools he learned through organizing his Community. He is a Mixteco Community Organizer in Ventura County, a special project coordinator at the Ventura County agricultural Commissioner’s Office, an active leader in his community co-founding Tequio Youth Group, O.Y.E (Oaxaqueño.Youth.Encuentro), Ventura County first Mixtec field worker training program and Templo evangelivo Ministerio triligue and many more.

On Thursday November 15th, 11: 30 AM in ASC-150, Brian Fitzpatrick, a Criminal Defense Attorney with the Ventura County Public Defender’s Office, describes his observations while at Standing Rock during the protest and his actions in legally defending the activists who were arrested.

The series of three speakers began this morning with Alan “Spirit Hawk” Salazar, a Native American story-teller, who spoke about Chumash maritime culture and shared the hidden history of Chumash families during the Missions life of California.

Arthur Miller’s The Crucible Nov 14-18

Official SYNOPSIS: Ordinary desires for love, respect, and power can lead to the devastating consequences of hysteria and persecution. Written as an allegory exploiting the activities of the House Un-American’s campaign to overtake the communist movement of the 1950’s, Arthur Miller’s classic The Crucible demonstrates humanity’s tendency towards mob rule and how the power of accusation and insinuation shifts the burden of proof to the accused rather than the accuser.

Fr Nov 16, 7:30 pm

Want to do something to help? The World Kitchen in Camarillo is still looking for volunteers; this poster was produced a few days ago and since then, the fire has reached almost 100k acres, and at one point 250k people were evacuated. While many have been allowed to return home, Malibu is still under evacuation orders and this morning the hot winds kicked up flames near lake Sherwood and Newbury Park.
The 101 freeway open going both directions by 7am Monday. Nov. 12 and we drove through the area soon after. Many off ramps are closed and CHP is a constant presence — as is the fire which came right up to the edges of many businesses and communities. It is stunning to see how much was saved — and how much was burned, and indeed still burning and smoking as we drove by.
So if you can, find a way to help.
