The Mundane in a Spectacular Era: #metoo and #blacklivesmatter

Lecture by Shatema Threadcraft

WHEN : Friday, February 22; 2:30-4:00 pm

WHERE : UHManoa, Saunders Hall, Room 637

Shatema Threadcraft is an Associate Professor of Government at Dartmouth. Her presentation will discuss the potential lessons the #metoo movement may hold for organizing around the gender-based violence concerns of black women. Contemporary black politics has focused on the politics of spectacular death – black men killed by police on tape. Many black women are murdered; however, they tend to be murdered in private. A black man is killed by a policeman or similar agent every 28 hours, but every 21 hours a black woman is killed by an intimate partner. A movement that has brought to light the overwhelming numbers of anonymous women who are victims of sexual harassment and violence that were once private demonstrates how the private, mundane might be made into a powerful and mobilizing spectacle when conditions are right.

FREE SCHOOL : MONICA JONES / HARM REDUCTION HAWAI‘I

hosted by Harm Reduction Hawai‘i

PRESENTATION BY MONICA JONES

WHEN : Friday March 1, 3 to 5 PM

WHERE : Ala Moana Hotel Carnation Room

Monica Jones is an African-American trans-woman and sex worker rights activist. While a student at Arizona State University, Jones campaigned against police sting operations against prostitutes, which were aided by the ASU School of Social work and religious charities.

One day after speaking at a protest against a Phoenix law which allows police to arrest anyone suspected of "manifesting prostitution". Jones accepted a ride home after visiting a bar, and the undercover officer driving the car arrested her under the law that she had been protesting.

Laverne Cox and Janet Mock joined a campaign against the Phoenix law, which they argue targets transgender women of color, following the conviction of Jones. Cox stated, "All over the country, trans women are targeted simply for being who they are. Laws like this manifestation law really support systematically the idea that girls like me, girls like me and Monica, are less than [others] in this country," Mock tweeted, "Speak against the profiling of [trans woman of color], like Monica Jones".

RED ALERT : CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

RAPID RESPONSE !!!!

Trump has forced Session to resign and has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel's Trump-Russia investigation!! 

PROTESTS CALLED FOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8!!

static1.squarespace.jpg

WHEN : Thursday, November 8 at 4pm
WHERE :  Federal Building (ewa corner where Ala Moana Blvd meets Halekauwila St)

Donald Trump has force Session to resign and installed a crony to oversee the special counsel's Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller's boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice.
