Donation Box in the Max for Asylum-Seekers at the Border

November 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - November 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm

This year Active Minds is focusing on mental health as the wide scale public health issue it is. Right now in the world there are people fleeing their homes in search of safety for themselves and their children. This journey often will harshly affect a person’s physical and mental health. For the month of October, every week Active Minds will release some information regarding the situation currently on the border, culminating in a donation drive.
Here’s how you can help:
Active Minds and Alpha Phi Omega have partnered to host a donation drive for asylum-seekers at the border. By donating menstrual products (tampons and pads) during our campus wide supply drive, you’ll be playing a part in the effort to restore some humanity in the individuals asking for asylum in this country. In addition to a physical drive, we will have a box in the Max during the two weeks of collection to make it super easy to donate. Collected materials will be shipped to Brownsville, TX to be distributed to asylum seekers by the Angry Tias and Abuela, a local group of activist located on the Texan-Mexican border.  

Hosted by: Active Minds at Emerson College, Alpha Phi Omega

Bright Lights Film Series: ‘Warrior Women’

November 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Bright Family Screening Room, 558 Washington Street
Boston, 02111 United States
Free

Co-presented with the Roxbury International Film Festival, the Boston Women’s Film Festival, and the Emerson Urban Arts Gallery, as part of the Power to the People series

Directed by Elizabeth Castle and Christina D. King; documentary; English with English subtitles; 65 minutes; USA (2018)

In the 1970s, with the swagger of unapologetic Indianness, organizers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) fought for Native liberation and survival as a community of extended families. Warrior Women is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, one such AIM leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children — including her daughter, Marcy — into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. Together, Madonna and Marcy fought for Native rights in an environment that made them more comrades than mother-daughter. Today, with Marcy now a mother herself, both are still at the forefront of Native issues, fighting against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for Indigenous cultural values.

Discussion led by faculty to follow. W, POC, SJ
