Clothesline Project

  • Salazar Plaza

The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women.

We are interconnected through SSU.  We are so much more than just faces in a crowd.  We are Seawolves. Join us as we unveil this year’s Faces of SSU!

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop
Apr

Apr 20

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop

  • Sonoma Valley Room , Student Center 2nd floor

Student led Movie and discussion on healthy and unhealthy relationships. Sponsored by Title IX and Title IX Interns.

The One Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. Prior to that day, Yeardley’s friends and family had no sense she was in danger.  In the months that followed, they were stunned to learn that relationship violence is something that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience in his/her lifetime.  Research also shows that young women ages 16-24 are 3x greater risk and have limited awareness of this fact.  One Love’s focus today is changing these statistics by sparking conversations in schools and communities around the country.

One Love works to give others the information that Yeardley and her friends and family didn’t have about what unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship behaviors look like, empowering them to help themselves and their friends.  To do this, One Love focuses on building emotionally-engaging, powerful content and tools that meet people where they are, show them the relevance of this issue in their own lives, and inspire them to join a movement for change.

A Fierce Hope: Helping Survivors Thrive After Sexual Violation

  • Ballroom C

Have you ever struggled to support victims of sexual violation? Sexual assault is a pervasive and serious social problem, made more insidious by a shadow of shame that isolates survivors and creates obstacles to justice.  But there is a lit path out of the darkness: a new paradigm, based on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, that provides tangible tools and techniques to guide survivors to healing, empowerment, and justice. In this interactive, engaging workshop, Lisa Foster, founder of parillume™, shows you how to lead survivors through their Hero’s Journeys from survivor to thriver, and how to transform the conversation about sexual violation from shame and silence to heroism and fierce hope.

Alpha Gamma Delta Lip Jam

  • Weill Hall, Green Music Center

As part of Sonoma State University’s Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity. We would like to share with you the opportunity to support our 25th annual Lip Jam, a lip-syncing and dancing competition between Sonoma State University clubs, fraternities, and sororities benefiting diabetes education and awareness. This year our theme is From the 90s Till Now. All of the participants will work with their organizations to portray an assigned year by only using songs from the top 100 Billboard chart of their year. There is a constant need for more research to help find a cure for diabetes, a disease that affects over 24 million adults and children, while 57 million more who are prediabetic. With the help of the participants, viewers, and donors we hope to make the biggest impact possible.

This past year the Greek community at SSU, local businesses, and supportive friends and family of fraternity members came together to raise $50,528.84. All proceeds were donated to the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation, which supports Diabetes Education and Awareness and provides scholarships for fraternity women to attend leadership conferences. Lip Jam 2017 will be held on February 25th at 12:00pm and 7:00pm, at Sonoma State’s prestigious Green Music Center.

The Magic Flute, Presented by The Department of Music and Theatre Arts & Dance

  • Person Theatre

"And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love, cannot be killed or swept aside…”     - Lin-Manuel Miranda, Creator of Hamilton and In the Heights.

In a mythical land between the sun and the moon, three mysterious ladies serving the Queen of the Night save Prince Tamino from a serpent. A fantastic journey begins, Tamino falls in love with the Queen’s beautiful daughter Pamina, kidnapped by the evil lord Sarastro. The Magic Flute has it all – lovers falling in love tortuously through discovery and challenge, bitter hate-filled ex-spouses, power struggles, juicy villains, and mystical beings descending from the skies. As magical as the flute it celebrates, Mozart’s final opera is beloved for its blend of fantastical storytelling, appealing characters, Shakespearian scope, emotional range (from silly to wrenching) and, always, the exquisite beauty of its music.

Thursday, Feb. 23 | 7:30 PM (Opening Night)
