Gender and Migration flash seminar (5 – 6 pm)
Presented by professors Ariana Vigil, Altha Cravey, and guest speaker.
Much like a “Flash Mob” encourages spontaneous dancing, a “Flash! Seminar” fosters spontaneous learning. Flash! Seminars are small seminars on a variety of subjects taught by UNC’s faculty members. No previous knowledge is required, nor is there any commitment other than the seminar for which you sign up. We only ask you to bring a desire to ask questions, debate, and meet professors and students.

“Strike the Hikes: Student Organizing Against Tuition Increases” (7:00 pm)
Since the reboot of Students for a Democratic Society at UNC one of the essential missions of our organization has been protesting tuition hikes. In recent years the UNC system has faced several rounds of tuition increases as a result of the regressive politics of both the NC legislature and the UNC Board of Governors. These days national student debt hovers around $1.1 trillion, thus crippling the futures of a generation. Come sit down with SDS and get involved with the movement for an affordable and accessible education!(Meet on the steps of Wilson Library)

Panel on Internationalist Books and Social Movements in Chapel Hill/Carrboro (4 pm)

This event is a great opportunity for students new to the area to learn about one piece of resistance history in Chapel Hill and to learn more about and connect with local organizing projects.

We constantly need help filling prisoner book requests. The work is very fulfilling: read a letter from a prisoner, find some books in our library and package them for mailing. There’s no need to sign up ahead of time and you can stay for as long as you wish.
