A2 City Council Meeting: Support Sanctuary City Status

Date: 
Mon, Apr 3, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

UPDATE: Becasue this is an ordinance (rather than a resolution) and it's the second (final) reading/vote, I believe that EVERYONE who wants to, can speak on Monday night. Even if you don't make it onto the speakers' list at the beginning of the meeting, there is a place on the agenda for people to speak about the "Don't Ask" ordinance.
---------
UPDATE: If possible, let's meet up at 6:30 on the first floor by the benches to have a short discussion before heading up to the meeting together.

Join Eli Clare as he uses history, storytelling, and poetry to examine the ways in which some bodies and communities are named as bad and disposable. Ranging widely from police brutality to disability-based bullying, he reveals the deep damage done by the notion of defectiveness. Weaving hope, critical analysis and compassionate storytelling together in his work on disability and queerness, he insists on the twine of race, class, gender, sexuality and disability.
