June is LGBTQI pride month!

This is celebrated in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. The Bay area has a plethora of pride events including Frameline Film Festival, Art and Music shows and exhibits, parades, marches, workshops, kids events and so much more Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. The queer contribution to collective human dignity throughout time has gone largely unseen, undermined and unnoticed. These contributions are critical to societies being humane. Queer communities and especially queer communities of color have worked tirelessly to ensure basic human rights while bearing the brunt of racism and homophobia and/or transphobia.  LGBTQI history month is in October, but June is the month to celebrate, educate and stand in pride for queer communities all over the world.

 Although not in June, there will be a Seminar on Queerness on July 28th, 2018 10AM facilitated by WISR Doctoral Student Rosa Reinikainen. Come and learn more about queer experience, history, and contribution to the democracy.

WISR’s Annual Conference will be Thursday October 4th through Saturday, October 7th or Sunday the 8th. Save the Date!

Listen to KQED Interview with WISR Doctoral Student, Jake Sloan!

Interview with WISR doctoral student, Jake Sloan, on KQED Forum, with Michael Krasny, May 29, 2018:

https://www.kqed.org/forum/2010101865458/how-the-mare-island-21ers-fought-for-the-rights-of-black-shipyard-workers

“In ‘Standing Tall,’ author Jake Sloan tells the story of the Mare Island “21ers,” who were African-American construction workers at Vallejo’s Mare Island Naval Shipyard in the 1960s. Facing insidious and chronic discrimination, a handful of the workers protested and filed a complaint with the federal government for mistreatment, despite fears of retribution. Their actions led to slow but systemic change, which benefited black workers in the construction industry and beyond. Sloan worked at Mare Island at the time and described himself as a young “foot soldier” in the 21ers movement.”

Guest:

Jake Sloan, author, Standing Tall: Willie Long and the Mare Island Original 21ers; owner, Davillier-Sloan Construction Company

Jake’s book, Standing Tall, was published by WISR Press.

The Way of ColorInsight: Understanding Race and Law Effectively
Through Mindfulness-Based ColorInsight Practices
(Georgetown Law Journal of Modern Critical Race Perspectives, Spring 2016)
By Rhonda V. Magee
Introduction
Despite much good effort to the contrary, reports from a wide variety of fields and locations serve daily to remind us that race still matters in America. To many legal scholars,these reports are not only not news but they suggest work that must be done within the legal academy to minimize racial bias within contemporary law. For example, in his groundbreaking Article, Trojan Horses of Race, Jerry Kang highlighted the research identifying and confirming
implicit bias as a pervasive cognitive, interpersonal dynamic, and placed on the research agenda that should follow this revelation scholarship by law professors examining “teaching strategies,”
as well as “debiasing programs, and [educational] environments.”

$30,000 Matching Funds Opportunity! Donate to WISR in 2017 and in 2018

Matching Funds Opportunity!!!:

Completely unexpectedly and extremely generously, an anonymous donor from the WISR community came forward with an offer based on unexpected monies that have come their way.  They will match up to $30,000 of the donations WISR receives over the next 13 months–$5,000 for December, and $25,000 for 2018.  We have matched the $5,000 as of the end of December, and have received an additional $5,000 toward the $25,000 match for 2018.  With another $20,000 in donations in 2018, we will receive the total $30,000 offered under this matching funds opportunity.

Some of you have already given, and others may not be able to give, and we are suggesting that those of you who cannot donate, try to contact individuals or groups whom you know who may be able to donate.  The monies donated can substantially strengthen our ability to successfully pursue accreditation.
