11a-12p: CIVIC ENGAGMENT PANEL – Use Your Voice: How to Engage in Local Politics (Room 9208)
Join ASG Governmental Affairs officer, Juan Chavez, for a panel discussion with Shoreline Mayor, Dr. Chris Roberts. Mayor Roberts graduated from Willamette University in 2000 and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2012 in Political Science. On the council, he serves as a member of the Association of Washington Cities Legislative Committee, the Sound Cities Association Public Issues Committee, and as an alternate to the Puget Sound Regional Council Growth Management Policy Board. Attend this panel to learn more about current local political context, how to get involved, and be a voice for positive change.

12:30p-1:30p: “ECHAO P’ALANTE” – Working towards an inclusive & intersectional understanding of the US Civil Rights Movement (Room 9208)
The Civil Rights Movement did not just start in 1954 and end in 1964. Our primary school education, history books, and associated media have in many ways collapsed and limited our understanding of the US Civil Rights Movement by esteeming certain types of action and actors while vilifying others, often at the expense of the collaborative movements that many have worked so hard to build. This workshop will draw on a variety of media in order to highlight multiple forms of resistance and sustained struggle against oppression culminating in all of the participants working together to build an inclusive and intersectional timeline of the Civil Rights Movement.

Featuring panelist Dr. Luis Ramos, who has been working with patients in the pharmacy field since 1998. Dr. Ramos worked his way up from an assistant to a technician to finally attending the University of Washington and receiving his Pharm D degree in 2010. Through his career, he developed a passion for HIV care and became certified as an HIV-specialized pharmacist through the American Association of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM).

12:30p-2:30p: THE COLOR OF FEAR – FILM (Room 9208)

The exchanges highlight the pain caused by racism in North America.

1p-3p: FREE HEALTH TESTING (Room 9201)
The nonprofit organization, GayCity, will be on campus to offer free HIV and STD screenings. From the organizers: “Testing for HIV and sexually transmitted infections remains one our most important core services, providing an opportunity for our community’s most marginalized groups to gain access to much needed HIV prevention resources. Of the nearly 4,000 free HIV tests we provided last year: half were people under thirty, a quarter of people were uninsured, two-thirds of people were economically disadvantaged and half were people of color.”

Thurs., May 11, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010M Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy? For 45 years, the country has alternated between periods of energy security and insecurity, sometimes able to wield petroleum as a useful instrument of foreign policy, sometimes not. Despite the so-called “energy revolution,” the U.S. today is by no means disentangled from foreign dependence and global trends. In order to be successful, policymakers must recognize both petroleum security circumstances and patterns in the relationship between petroleum and foreign policy.

Format:
6:30 – Video background report (compliments printed briefing paper provided in advance)*
7:00 – Remarks by guest
7:30 – group discussion
