Education & Empowerment Programs
The Women's Center's Education & Empowerment programming focuses on responding to the needs and interests of students, with an emphasis on providing gender equity and social justice education. We accomplish this through monthly events that include Sister Circles, workshops, film screenings, and discussions on issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, class, ability, and power dynamics. Our programming also involves larger events such as our annual film festival LUNAFEST and community march Take Back the Night.
We work to refer students to resources that they need in relation to their marginalized identities, use our social media platforms to increase educational opportunities and spread awareness on social issues, and provide a safe space on campus with a media lending library to facilitate liberatory educational opportunities. All of our programs are used to bring awareness to and prevent social injustices in our community, as well as empower and strengthen those most marginalized by systems of power, oppression, and privilege.
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these events, email us! - firstname.lastname@example.org
