Transformative Justice is our Future and our Legacy

We are excited to help promote the event “Transformative Justice is our Future and our Legacy” as sponsored by the SAVP office! The event will star keynote speaker Ejeris Dixon, who will discuss the meaning behind addressing intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and bias violence in contemporary times, as well as the meaning of blending creative visions for the future we want while holding the multi-generational genius of Black and Queer survivorship.

The event will take place in Rocky 200 or on Zoom on Tuesday, October 26 from 6:30-8:00 pm.

In-person attendees will be required to show one of the following: their Vassar I.D., proof of vaccination, a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within three days of the event, OR a negative rapid antigen test taken the day of the event. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Anyone who RSVPs for Zoom will be sent the event link on the day of the event (and is not required to show proof of vaccination, etc).

We hope to see you there!

Lunchtime Discussion – Breaking the Pattern of Racial Segregation and Injustice as the City Evolves

The Anti-Racism, Equity and Justice (AREJ) Organizing Team invites you to our next Lunchtime Discussion on Tuesday, October 12th at noon.

As the title suggests, the Lunchtime Discussion will center on the racial segregation aspects of city design and development, which are founded from a long history of injustice in the city of Poughkeepsie. The event will be featuring Fringe Cities, Mass Design.

We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions about these events and how we run them, please contact
