3. Project SURVIVE and National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Project SURVIVE, the Sexual Health Education and Sexual Violence Prevention program of City College of San Francisco¡¦s Women¡¦s Studies Department, is sponsoring multiple events to commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October 2016. Our aim is to raise awareness of this pervasive problem: on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in the U.S. (NISVS data). Although anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, women are disproportionately affected. One in four women is the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime (NISVS data).
Please see the attached flyer for events.

8. 8th Annual Talanoa Series at CCSF for Fall 2016

In association with The Talanoa Series of Las Vegas, NV, Salt Lake City, UT, San Mateo, CA, and our newest city, Portland, Oregon, the City College of San Francisco¡¦s Critical Pacific Islands & Oceania Studies Program & VASA Transfer Prep Program, is delighted to present our 8th Annual Talanoa Series for Fall 2016!

The word ¡§tala¡¨ in Pacific languages means ¡§story¡¨ while the word ¡§noa¡¨ means ¡§to tie or to bind.¡¨ When the two words are put together, they form the word ¡§talanoa¡¨ which translates to ¡§connecting stories together.¡¨ Our strong mission of the Talanoa Series is to bring together our students, guests, and communities to share and connect stories/experiences about topics and issues that shape indigenous Pacific Islander communities across our vast ocean.

In honor of sustaining our oceanic connections, we are pleased to announce our 1st speaker of our 8th Annual Talanoa Series Fall 2016¡XSamoan Activist, Mr. Harrison Misioka Seuga, B.A. Mr. Harrison Misioka Seuga was born on the Island of Tutuila, in the U.S. Territory of American Samoa. His mother is from the village of Futiga and his father from the Manu'a Islands. After serving 21 years in prison as a juvenile lifer, he attended San Francisco State University where he graduated with an honors Bachelor¡¦s Degree in Sociology in 2013. He is currently the Re-entry Director for Asian Prisoner Support Committee (APSC), helping to design the first culturally competent immersion reentry model to support Pacific Islander and Asian parolees. Mr. Seuga has contributed significantly to APSC's San Quentin Roots Program, a weekly Ethnic Studies based program focusing on Pacific Islander experiences and narratives in California¡¦s prison industrial complex.

Mr. Seuga¡¦s talk entitled, ¡§Stay Woke!: Narratives Our Past & Present,¡¨ will focus on his personal experiences with migration, incarceration, education, and his activism on the complexities of incarceration & immigration issues. His presentation will engage the audience in a conversation on several interlinking topics: the past and present beginning with the Mau movement¡Xa powerful but often forgotten independence movement of the 1930s in Samoa; the police brutality of Polynesians and other Pacific Islanders by law enforcement due to the racial stereotypes and threats associated with the Pacific Islander ¡§body¡¨; and the commodification of those same Pacific bodies as ¡§warriors¡¨ in the U.S. military, athletic, and movie industries. Mr. Seuga will connect these tributaries as way to highlight for Pacific Islander communities the need to be involved in social justice work around mass incarceration and its impacts on society.

The Talanoa Series will be held at the Ocean campus of the City College of San Francisco in the Multi-Use Building (MUB) Room 140 on Thursday, September 29th from 6:00-9:00pm. Refreshments/dinner will be served. Disability accommodations provided upon request. Parking is available in the student parking lot near the Multi-Use Building (MUB) free of charge.
