Trans Day of Rememberance - Power and Joy

Please join us for our Trans Day of Rememberance event, "Power and Joy," which will begin in Chancellor Green at 7pm. There we will feature a panel with renowed activists Chrystos, a two-spirit self-educated writer and activist, Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi, an African, Cuban, Indigenous, American trans performance artist, author, and teacher, and K. Kenneth Davis, the CEO of The TransCapitalist, a financial literacy organization for the LGBTQIA Communities. Following the panel, there will be a Rest in Power Vigil to celebrate the lives of those lost to violence, with a procession to a reception in the LGBT Center in Frist Campus Center. 

This Trans Day of Rememberance event has a theme of retelling and of recognition. We use this day to celebrate those who have lost their lives to violence, as well as to celebrate activists and trans* people who continue to bring joy and light into our communities. 

Please note that this event is occurring on Wednesday, November 15th (not the national day of Trans Remembrance, November 20th).

Reunions: Race Relations and Diversity: Impacts of Today's Political Climate on Vulnerable Children and Families- A panel discussion

Since Inauguration Day, a flurry of executive orders and cabinet appointments, along with the Republican majority in Congress, foreshadows dramatic changes that will  impact vulnerable children and their families in significantly negative ways. Reduced affordable housing, parental deportations, immigration bans, cutbacks in free and reduced price meals, Medicaid cuts, education vouchers that reduce funds available for public schools, limited access to healthcare, and an increase in xenophobia are some of these challenges. What does it mean for vulnerable families and how can average citizens be supportive and engaged to help those in need?

Moderator: Sheryl WuDunn *88, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, entrepreneur and best selling author of A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity and Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Trustee of Princeton University.

GSS Book Club - "A Body, Undone" by Christina Crosby

GSS Book Club - "A Body, Undone" by Christina Crosby

In the early evening on October 1, 2003, Christina Crosby was three miles into a seventeen mile bicycle ride, intent on reaching her goal of 1,000 miles for the riding season. She was a respected senior professor of English who had celebrated her fiftieth birthday a month before. As she crested a hill, she caught a branch in the spokes of her bicycle, which instantly pitched her to the pavement. Her chin took the full force of the blow, and her head snapped back. In that instant, she was paralyzed.
 
In A Body, Undone, Crosby puts into words a broken body that seems beyond the reach of language and understanding. She writes about a body shot through with neurological pain, disoriented in time and space, incapacitated by paralysis and deadened sensation. To address this foreign body, she calls upon the readerly pleasures of narrative, critical feminist and queer thinking, and the concentrated language of lyric poetry. Working with these resources, she recalls her 1950s tomboy ways in small-town, rural Pennsylvania, and records growing into the 1970s through radical feminism and the affirmations of gay liberation.

Deeply unsentimental, Crosby communicates in unflinching prose the experience of "diving into the wreck" of her body to acknowledge grief, and loss, but also to recognize the beauty, fragility, and dependencies of all human bodies. A memoir that is a meditation on disability, metaphor, gender, sex, and love, A Body, Undone is a compelling account of living on, as Crosby rebuilds her body and fashions a life through writing, memory, and desire.
 
LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED. PLEASE RSVP TO voelcker@princeton.edu.
