So this video started going around my facebook today, with about a dozen of my female friends sharing the link with comments like, and “Everyone needs to see this”, and “All girls should watch this,” and “This made me cry.” And I’m not trying to shame those girls! I definitely understand why they would do so. And I don’t want to be a killjoy. But as I clicked the link and started watching the video, I started to feel a slight sense of discomfort. I couldn’t put my finger on why that was, exactly, but it continued throughout the whole thing. After watching the video several more times, I have some thoughts…
What does health care reform mean for our clients?
Come and find out from activist organization Raising Women’s Voices and Health Care for All NY how you can bring word to your clients – and your friends! – of the benefits of the new Health Care Reform Law, with a focus on women’s access to health care.
Raising Women’s Voices (raisinwomensvoices.net) is a grassroots organization advocating for appropriate health care for all women. RWV is spearheading a state-wide campaign aiming to maximize the enrollment of low-income women and women of color in particular in the new and complex health care exchanges system starting in September 2013.
Food and drinks will be provided! Room 312 at 1PM on Tuesday, April 23rd.

How many of you can relate to these thoughts?:
“Ugh… Queer Caucus only does white people things!” …. “I’m lesbian and feminist, but I feel alienated by the feminist movement.” … “Why don’t straight people come to queer events?” … “Why don’t white people come to people of color events?” …

Join the Feminist Caucus as we Take Back the Night on Thursday, March 18th at 7:30PM, starting in Room 404 and then circling around the Columbia campus.
Tonight is a night of unity. We march as a community to demonstrate our solidarity against the violence that affects all of us, as survivors, and as co-survivors who share the pain of our partners, our friends, our families and our community members. We march because we recognize that only together can we break the cycle of violence. With rage we march and with strength we speak.
Take back the day. Take back the night. Take back our bodies. Take up the fight.
The greater Columbia community will be marching from main campus and we will join them at West 120th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. Meet us at 7:30 PM in Room 404 for dinner and poster making before the March.
Here is the route if you would like to join the March later in the night:http://i.imgur.com/P81lvxK.jpg
On April 10 at 8:15PM, join the Feminist Caucus of Columbia University School of Social Work for a viewing of the documentary film Very Young Girls by the organization GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services). Very Young Girls is an exposé of the commercial sexual exploitation of girls in New York City as they are sold on the streets by pimps and treated as adult criminals by police. The film follows barely adolescent girls in real time, using vérité and intimate interviews with them, documenting their struggles and triumphs as they seek to exit the commercial sex industry. The film also uses startling footage shot by pimps themselves, giving a rare glimpse into how the cycle of exploitation begins for many women. The film identifies hope for these girls in the organization GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services), a recovery agency founded and run by Rachel Lloyd, herself a survivor of commercial sexual exploitation.

On April 17 at 12:00PM, join the Feminist Caucus for a training with GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services) on CSEC (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children) and domestic trafficking. This training is designed to raise awareness about CSEC and domestic trafficking and how these issues relate to our current field placements or future social work positions. Specific issues that will be focused on include the identification of CSE youth, engagement, outreach, and use of motivational interviewing with CSEC and domestic trafficking victims
