Other Items of Interest:
1) The Social Justice Center is holding an event on Monday, February 13th from 7-9pm in Ursa's Fireside, entitled "Tokenism and 'Diversity': The Easy Way Out." Professor Shawn Shimpach will be facilitating a discussion. There will also be free food representing different groups of people, in a tokenistic fashion. Prof. Shimpach taught the course "Freshman Seminar: Race and Ethnicity on American Television" and he will be using his expertise and material from this course to convey tokenism in the media. The discussion will touch on the larger issue of tokenism in hiring, recruiting, political appointment, public relations campaigns, etc.

2) The next Gayla Committee Meeting is Monday, February 20th at 9PM in the lower level seminar room of Eliot House on the South 40. We are still hammering out a lot of important details, and we could use all the help we can get!
