Las Libres Film Screening
Monday, November 17th from 2:00-4:00pm in the Multicultural Center (SMSU 228)
This documentary focuses on how Las Libres, a women’s human’s rights organization in Mexico, fought to free six women who had been incarcerated and convicted of homicide for terminating their pregnancies. (One of the women hadn’t even had an abortion, but had miscarried. But that didn’t matter.) All of them were sentenced to between 20 and 30 years in jail. This event is hosted by the Women's Resource Center Reproductive Justice Action Team.

Spiritual Sustainability: Celebrating the life of Nicole Sangsuree
Thursday, November 20th from 5:00-7:00pm in the Women's Resource Center
Celebrate the life of Nicole Sangsuree by rejoicing in her wisdom and passions!
