Come hear speakers discuss their experiences with gun violence and volunteers from local organizations to explain how you can take action.
“The Faces Of” Art Exhibit
April 5—May 5 — Lounge-Area in the 1st floor in HH
This year’s BIG Read explores indigenous peoples and more specifically violence and violence against indigenous women. We are going to get involved by calling for public attention to missing and murder indigenous women, b/c, as the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center states, “it is more than an epidemic—instead is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by Native women.” The epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women is “attributed to the lack of legal protection as a result of” the relocation and assimilation of indigenous peoples years ago (National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center). We will call public attention to missing and murdered indigenous peoples by telling their stories in an art exhibit in the spring of 2024.
