Poetry reading @alleycatbooks by Margaret Randall, Naomi Quiñonez and Avotcja. Margaret, a poet, activist, photographer and author of 100 over books, will be featured in a film by our #honolulubiennial2017 partner @engagingthesenses "Margaret was privileged to live among New York’s abstract expressionists in the 1950s and early ’60s, share the rebellion of the Beats, participate in the Mexican student movement of 1968, live in Cuba during the second decade of that country’s revolution (1969-1980), reside in Nicaragua during the first four years of the Sandinista project (1980-1984), and visit North Vietnam during the heroic last months of the U.S. American war in that country (1974). In 1984, Margaret came home to the United States, only to be ordered deported when the government invoked the 1952 McCarran-Walter Immigration and Nationality Act, judging opinions expressed in some of her books to be "against the good order and happiness of the United States." The Center for Constitutional Rights defended her, and many writers and others joined in an almost five-year battle for reinstatement of citizenship. She won her case in 1989. In 1990 she was awarded the Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett grant for writers victimized by political repression; and in 2004 was the first recipient of PEN New Mexico’s Dorothy Doyle Lifetime Achievement Award for Writing and Human Rights Activism. In 2009 two of her photographs were accepted into the Capitol Arts Foundation permanent collection of work by New Mexican artists on display at the State capitol."
The College of Social Work and the Office for Equity and Diversity are pleased to present SALON DE LA RÈSISTANCE, hosted by and featuring Jade Phoenix, who identifies as a queer, trans femme, woman of color, first generation Filipinx-American, parent, LA-based performance poet and activist/educator. Next Wednesday, September 27, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, please join Jade in room 109 of the Carolyn Tanner Irish Humanities Building (215 Central Campus Drive) for this spoken word performance and open mic event. The goal is to provide a space for students, staff, faculty, and community members to come together in solidarity, to resist anti-social justice speech and rhetoric, and to engage in transformative work artistically. #SocialJustice#Advocacy#Activism#SocialWork#USocialWork#UofU#UniversityofUtah

The death toll from the powerful earthquake that struck Mexico yesterday afternoon jumped to 217, government officials said today, as searchers worked desperately to find survivors in the ruins of collapsed structures. The quake toppled dozens of buildings and led to the deaths of 21 children in a school that collapsed in #MexicoCity. “The priority at this moment is to keep rescuing people who are still trapped and to give medical attention to the injured people,” Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, said last night. The devastating temblor sent people fleeing into the streets and came just 2 weeks after another earthquake centered off Mexico’s southern coast rattled the capital. It also happened on the 32nd anniversary of a 1985 quake that killed as many as 10,000 people and flattened 400 buildings in Mexico City. The photographer @adrianazehbrauskas took this photo last night in Mexico City. Visit the link in our profile to read updates on the #earthquake.
