PROTEST SAFETY
Tuesday, September 28, 1-2pm, Instagram Live @SJSUCCCAC
Protesting is one of the many ways we draw attention to the issues important to us! But it’s important to learn how to stay safe in the process. Hear from a community activist to learn what protesting safety looks like!

ABLEISM IN SOCIAL JUSTICE SPACES
Tuesday, October 19, 1-2pm, Instagram Live @SJSUCCCAC
Learn how to combat ableism!
As activists and advocates, we are often so busy organizing, that we forget to look at our spaces and who we design them for. A community activist will speak to their own experiences, facing ableism in social justice spaces.
