    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.

    This series of events brings together parent leaders from different communities to share stories about their grassroots efforts to promote equity and justice in their children's education and discuss common struggles while showing support for one another. During Winter and Spring Quarters 2018, we plan to have two events out in the community and a culminating event at DePaul.

    Each year, students, staff, and faculty gather to speak out against and resist sexual, gender, racial, and other forms of violence within DePaul as well as in the broader community and world. The event includes a speak out, a rally and march through campus, as well as community support circles that center people’s stories on the impact of sexual and other forms of violence on all of us.

  • Vagina Monologues

    Vagina Monologues

    February 8-11, 2018 | 7:30pm
    Cortelyou Commons (2324 N. Fremont, Chicago, 60614)

    The Vagina Monologues at DePaul offers an intersectional body of experiences that are inclusive of different identities and relationships to gender violence and abuse. As opposed to centering “woman” with “vagina,” and white mainstream feminism, DePaul VMONS fosters a more inclusive space where women of color and trans people perform, collaborate and participate in the show to talk about their own experiences with violence as well.
