College Civics Week!!

Hey everyone! College Civics week is here! The Office of Student Legislative Affairs is extremely excited to announce that we will be hosting a week long event with a wide variety of activities, workshops, documentaries, games, etc! AND with Secretary of State Sam Reed!! Woot woot!

This email is specifically to invite you all to come and meet Sam Reed, our Secretary of State! Before he retires in January, Secretary of State Sam Reed plans to go back to college – many colleges, actually. And Bellevue College is one of them! As part of his College Civics tour, Sam Reed will be visiting Bellevue College and meeting y’all awesome students. Since taking office in 2000, Sam Reed has led the State of Washington into the 21st Century and secured its legacy. In 2004, he launched the nation’s first state government digital archives to rescue disappearing electronic history. And best of all, he’s one really cool, friendly guy.

Apart from having Sam Reed as our keynote speaker, OSLA will be hosting a jeopardy event and LOTS of free food. Come meet Sam Reed from 3:30 – 4:30 PM on April 10th, 2012. You don’t want to miss this!

Justice for Shaima and Trayvon

April 11, 2012 in B104 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. there will be a panel discussion.

The topic not only Justice for Shaima and Trayvon but also how we can take what has happened and bring action to our own campus to dispel hate brought about by racism.

Please wear your HOODIE or SCARF in solidarity.

 

For more information:

On March 24, Shaima Alawadi, 32-year-old mother of 5 died after being beat to death by a tire iron in her own home three days earlier. Next to her body was a note that said, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.”

About a month earlier, on February 26, 17-year-old African American, Trayvon Martin, was shot and killed by 28-year-old George Zimmerman while walking home from a convenience store.

Shaima, an Iraqi Muslim woman who wore the headscarf, and Trayvon, an African American boy who was wearing a hoodie were both subject to the same ill fate.

On April 11, students from across the nation will stand in solidarity against discrimination and hate. As students, we demand legal justice for both Shaima and Trayvon.
