"We call upon our Chinese siblings opposing the Ordinance and Trust Act to remember that American citizenship has historically been rooted in exclusion, steeped in racism, and enforced by state-sanctioned violence. Immigration laws that today restrict our undocumented, Latinx, and Muslim siblings — and disproportionately impact Black immigrant communities — have historically limited our own community’s freedom."

happy international working femme & women's day! i do not believe that feminism will effectively challenge patriarchy by using the gender binary because patriarchy is the institutionalization and maintenance of the gender binary. the problem is not just cis men's dominance over cis women, it is about the existence of "man" and "woman" as oppositional & mutually exclusive to begin with. feminism must address the root causes: that gender is foundationally violent and that gender non-conforming people experience the brunt of this violence. centering intersex and gender non-conforming people in feminism is not "politically correct," it is correct. cis feminism is not feminism, it is patriarchy. trans exclusionary feminism is not feminism, it is misogyny. the future is not "female," the future is free of racist and essentialist ideas of "gender" and "sex."

"When have we seen two black men kiss? Barry Jenkins directs this film with compassion and made so many ground breaking choices. Also important is [Mahershala] Ali's portrayal of Juan. We've seen the black drug dealer so many times [but] I can't recall a portrayal with so much sensitivity. So many of us black men do not have a father figure and the scene with Juan and Little in the water gave me so many feels."

Georgetown University Sexual Assault Peer Educators - SAPE

**Opportunity to spread awareness around survivorship on Georgetown’s Campus**

SAPE will be launching a photo campaign in early March entitled “Survivors of Georgetown”. The goal of this campaign is to increase awareness and visibility around survivorship here on campus by the anonymous sharing of survivor stories. We believe that this is important because the sharing of narratives is not only empowering to survivors but also works towards eliminating the stigma of silence around one’s story. The photo campaign will consist of a series of photos with members of SAPE holding a sign in front of their face consisting of a few lines of submitted survivor stories.

Submissions will be made through an anonymous google form. The submission process will open February 20th and close March 10th. Submissions are to be no longer than 2 paragraphs with the understanding that only an excerpt will be featured in the photo while the rest will serve as a caption. Any part of one’s narrative is encouraged to be shared, from the content of the event(s) to where one is in the healing process. Submissions are to be anonymous and reviewed by a confidential resource.

Please, don’t be afraid to send us your submissions. Let’s turn this campaign into a reality.
Thank You

i want a world where friendship is appreciated as a form of romance. i want a world where when people ask if we are seeing anyone we can list the names of all of our best friends and no one will bat an eyelash. i want monuments and holidays and certificates and ceremonies to commemorate friendship. i want a world that doesn't require us to be in a sexual/romantic partnership to be seen as mature (let alone complete). i want thousands of songs and movies and poems about the intimacy between friends. i want a world where our worth isn't linked to our desirability, our security to our monogamy, our family to our biology. i want a movement that fights for all forms of relationships, not just the sexual ones.

Confused about why our platform connects the state violence of US mass incarceration and the occupation of Palestine? This article gets at one of the many reasons:

"'While we are focusing on Palestine and the US in terms of state-sponsored violence against youth and children, we do this through an intersectional approach,' she added. 'We talk about militarizing of the police. We talk about the fact that the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere else around the world. We talk about what structural racism is and the role that that plays.'"

#HoyaSitIn Day Two Update:
A Statement from the Georgetown Solidarity Committee

As the sit-in of the Georgetown University President’s Office Suite enters its second day, the eight students continuing to occupy the inner office remain committed despite a night of cold and restless sleep on the floor.

“While we are in high spirits and confident in our success, honestly we’re pretty disappointed,” said Joseph Gomez, SFS ‘19, one of the occupiers. “Jesuit values aren’t just slogans to us. We really believe in the values that Georgetown claims, and I think a part of me hoped that the administrators would stick to our values in the really simple way we are asking. This is a sad day for Georgetown.”

Administrators discussed the Nike contract with students for only fifteen minutes yesterday at the very end of the day. They failed to respond to students’ arguments that cutting the licensing agreement is the only way to gain the bargaining power necessary to get Workers Rights Consortium monitoring and the GU Code of Conduct included in the University’s sponsorship agreement with Nike. Rather, J. Callahan Watson and Joseph Ferrara continued to repeat the same talking points, insisting that they wanted to engage with Nike and try to influence their practices, despite no indications that Georgetown has such power over the brand.

There has been no sight of or word from President DeGioia himself. This has been the case not just during the sit-in, but throughout the fourteen months students have been negotiating with administrators over the Nike contract. Since September 2016, the Licensing Oversight Committee, inclusive of students, faculty, and administrators, has stressed at every meeting that they want to discuss this issue with President DeGioia. He has refused to attend a single meeting.

“If administrators are as uncooperative today as they were yesterday, we are going to escalate,” said Gabe Mielke, SFS ‘20, another student occupier. “We want to talk to DeGioia, he’s the final decisionmaker. Why can’t he at least talk to us?”

“Some fellow students have been surprised about our taking such a decisive action,” Gomez said, when asked about student reactions to the sit-in. “What I want all of them to know is that thousands of workers walked out in Vietnam over these conditions. This is in a country where it is illegal to organize, so they did that under threat of death. I know the eight of us still inside have those workers constantly on our minds.”

The banner the students hung from the front balcony of Healy Hall remains: “Occupied until DeGioia cuts Nike.”

Solidarity Forever,
The Georgetown Solidarity Committee

Hey if you're not too busy with finals tonight, please come join @United Feminists as we support the women's basketball team. We'll make some signs, here, at the intersectional feminism house and then head over to McDonough to cheer them on. I've witnessed with my own eyes how much of a difference it makes to have us out there supporting them. We also have Mai Thai!

A few moments ago, 17 Georgetown students stormed President DeGioia's office to demand that he #JustDoTheRightThing and cut our unjust licensing contract with Nike. According to a recently released report by independent monitors, Nike commits systematic labor abuses in its Hansae Factory which produces Georgetown apparel.

Students have pledged to occupy the President's office until they receive written confirmation that President DeGioia will CUT THE CONTRACT!

Join us today at 11:45am in Dahlgren Quad to show our support for these students who are willing to put it all on the line to stand with Nike workers. Students who have not stormed the office ask you to join us for a solidarity sit-in in President DeGioia's foyer.
