Janit V. Saechao Releases: Reclamation By The Refugees Daughter

Friday, December 2, 2016

4pm to 6pm

Portland State University/Women’s Resource Center

RECLAMATION by the Refugees’ Daughter is a compilation of poetry, short prose, and images that come together to exist as an act of defiance. It is meant to take back years of forced suppression and reclaim the power of the voice, even in the face of pain and trauma. It’s a scream, a cry, a calling for all things lost to the US Secret War in Laos. It is a creation of a new tradition of rebellion for a womxn who once knew only otherwise. It is the found courage of a brown Iu-Mien+Khmu girl, daughter of refugees, to finally say, “yes” to herself and , “no” to all things that attempt to erase her.

Janit V. Saechao is The Refugees’ Daughter. As a first generation Khmu & Iu Mien womxn, her writing is a reflection of her steady journey toward self-understanding as she reconnects with her roots. Her pieces are often uncensored documentations of her most vulnerable moments of growth, change and discovery. She recognizes that her voice, in all of its many forms has been the basis of her survival and ability to thrive. Through her work, she explores her relationships with her multiple identities, while actively striving toward artistic and cultural preservation for her peoples

**TODAY!!* Election Reflections: A Message to the Movement

Sunday, November 20, 2016

4pm-6pm

In Other Words Feminist Community Center

Let’s come together for a political discussion about the implications of living and organizing under President-elect Donald Trump. How did this happen? What does it mean that a majority of white voters elected an open white supremacist with broad support from racist cops, the klan, and neo-Nazis to the most powerful office on earth? What does our collective existence in America look like now? What does organizing in America look like now? What has changed? What is still the same? What are we really fighting for?

Our existence in this country has never been an easy one. In many ways, however, it has helped prepare us for this moment.

At this event let’s talk about what comes next.

We’ll be reading portions of The Black Liberation Army’s: A Message to the Black Movement together to help guide and ground our discussion. Download a PDF of it here (copies will also be available at the space): https://archive.lib.msu.edu/DMC/AmRad/messageblackmovement.pdf

This space is for Africans and folks of color only.
