Political Education: Hyper-surveillance in Detroit

Date: 
Tue, Jul 16, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Lack of affordable housing, contaminated water in our schools, unreliable public transportation, lack of access to HIV/AIDS medications, mental health facilities closings and lack of stable jobs. These are a few of many resources Detroiters are denied, because Duggan and Detroit city government has determined that a large portion of our budget should go towards hyper surveillance, facial recognition technology and over-policing in our neighborhoods in effort to stop crime.

Unboxing Homosexuality

Date: 
Tue, Jul 9, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

This conversation will unbox the invention of homosexuality, and what it means to be gay in a post colonial society. Gay culture has hierarchies, power and privilege based on race, class, and gender expression that should not go checked.

We’ll explore heteronormativity and the rigid lines its drawn for homosexuality. Narratives that majority cultures inscribe and gay culture reinforces. What it means to be Queer and its relationship to homosexuality.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
