Pleases everyone, do me this favor.

Yesterday, Spartans Taking Action Now: Darfur (STAND), a group that I know the co-founder of, was notified by Reebok and MtvU that we had been selected as one of three finalists to receive a $10,000 grant for our work to promote awareness about the genocide that is ongoing in Darfur, Sudan, which has already claimed 400,000 lives and displaced 2 million people. For more information, please go to http://www.savedarfur.org

The reason that I am posting this is because we need people to vote for our group online so that we can
receive the grant. Please visit:

The voting process is simple:

There is a $40,000 grant that Swarthmore, Georgetown, and Duke are eligible for. I personally would
encourage you to vote for Georgetown since it is their organization which helped organize the National
Student Leadership Conference: A Call to Action for Darfur, which brought together hundreds of college and
high-school students and representatives of other groups.

Then, you will be taken to the next page where you can vote for the $10,000 grant finalists. University of
Florida, the Liberation Theater, and Michigan State University are eligible. Of course, I'm encouraging
you all to vote for MSU. You can read about our plans on the website, in addition to the other groups.

Voting ends on May 4. Please take 10 seconds to support Michigan State University's STAND against genocide. You may vote as many times as you wish!

Have you ever heard of the HCSAC? Honors College Student Advisory Council?

Well, you should. Check it out. The website's a bit outdated, but it should be redone over the summer. :]

Kiss My Gender Drag Show! [Mar. 29th, 2005|03:44 am]
Michigan State's Honors College

***Please Forward Widely***


Lansing, MI – On March 31st, starting at 10:00 PM, a progressive and politically-focused drag show will take place at the Temple Club. The show is called “Kiss My Gender” and is organized by Drag King Rebellion (DKR), a local drag troupe that combines pop and dance routines with a radical political message. Although “Kiss My Gender” is organized by DKR, the show features 15 other performers from Lansing, East Lansing, Detroit, Flint, and even New York. All proceeds from the show will be given to “Via Campesina,” an international solidarity movement focused on assisting communities of fisher folk and peasants in their own Tsunami relief and reconstruction efforts, as well as other progressive organizations.

When: Thursday, March 31st, 10:00PM – 2AM

Where: The Temple Club, 500 E Grand River Ave, Lansing, 48906 (A shuttle will run from the MSU Union to the Temple Club throughout the night free of charge)

Why: To raise money for Via Campesina, challenge gender stereotypes and raise other important social justice issues, and have fun while doing it

What: A progressively political showcase of talent and activism, all wrapped up into one amazingly fun night!

DRAG KING REBELLION is a drag troupe based in East Lansing, MI. They decided to organize “Kiss My Gender” as a way to link the drag community to other local communities, as well as to show case Michigan talent and contribute to a grassroots community-empowerment organization. In addition to DKR, other performers, such as Jonah Thomas, Alayna Angel Kennedi, Azziza Infiniti, Tom Follary, and Asher Stone will be there.

“’Kiss My Gender’ was born out of the idea that drag shows can not only be a form of entertainment, but also a vehicle for social change. By using art, such as song, dance, and performance to comment on various issues, we are hoping to present people with a fresh way of looking at things,” said TJ Jourian, organizer of Kiss My Gender and member of Drag King Rebellion.

“I’m expecting a fun-filled night where we can all play with assumptions about gender and also learn a lot about important social justice issues,” said Staci Gunner, an MSU Student.

Support Workers' Rights! [Mar. 16th, 2005|11:13 pm]
Michigan State's Honors College

*****************FORWARD WIDELY********************************

Say No To Sweatshops!
Rally for Workers Rights!

March 18th, 2005
John Hannah Administration Building
Michigan State University

On March 18th, 2005, Movimiento Estudiantil Xicano de Aztlan (MEXA) and
Students for Economic Justice (SEJ) invite you to a day of protest in
support of workers' rights. We are in the final stages of a 5 year
campaign for Michigan State University to Join the Worker Rights
Consortium (WRC), a labor monitoring body working to ensure that MSU
clothing is not made in sweatshops. 9 of 11 Big Ten Universities and 135
Universities total are already members of the WRC, and with your help, MSU
will be next.

We will be having a final meeting with the President of MSU about this
issue on March 18th, the rally will be on the same day. At this point we
believe MSU will join the WRC but what is in dispute is what MSU's WRC
code of conduct will look like. the code is the legal document behind
the WRC that holds companies accountable for where and how their clothing
is made. Our administration wants to join the WRC with a code that is
weak and ineffective. MSU's membership in the WRC must be accompanied by
a strong code of conduct. Our membership has to actually mean something
more than good PR for MSU.

Join us for what will hopefully the final days in the campaign for MSU to
join the WRC.

Justice: Do It.
