Dandelions is a quarterly event about building community, healing, and transformation for all bodies and people. Organized by the Building Communities, Ending Violence project, the event offers space for creative arts, storytelling, refreshments, and the envisioning of new ways of living and relating. It’s a space where participants lift up and celebrate our individual and collective efforts—small and large—to heal, to grow, to resist, to thrive, to bloom.

Social justice and human rights advocate Marissa Alexander is one of the most recognizable and referenced sources for insight on domestic violence, criminalization of survivors, minimum mandatory sentencing, and disparities in criminal justice. Join Marissa for a powerful conversation about surviving state and interpersonal violence.
Come join us in the Women's Center for our first book club meeting of the year! There will be food and lively discussion surrounding The Handmaid's Tale and its implications on women and other marginalized groups in the U.S. today. We ask that all in attendance complete the book by the meeting date to avoid spoilers. You can find The Handmaid's Tale for FREE on Amazon prime for Kindle, or in your local used bookstore or library.
Join the LGBTQIA Resource Center, the Building Communities, Ending Violence Project, and the Women’s Center for a dialogue-driven skillshare on how to engage in difficult dialogues with friends and family while away for winter break. RSVP preferred, but not required. If you RSVP, you’ll have access to some of the workshop materials.
Cecily and Maria will read excerpts from their chapter entitled “Decolonizing Pinay Motherhood.” This chapter stands among other beautiful works within the recently released Pilipinx Radical Imagination Reader, edited by Melissa-Ann Nievera Lozano and Anthony Abulencia Santa Ana. We will then open up a community dialogue regarding the joys and perils of life as faculty and graduate students of color in the academy.

This quarter we are collecting donations of stuffed animals for migrant children and families to whom we are connected. Stuffed animals can be new or gently used, with all soft parts (no beanie babies) and with no small parts that could be torn off and swallowed, such as buttons for eyes.
