  • the History of #metoo

    January 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
    Longmont Public Library, 301-399 Emery St, Longmont, CO 80501, USA

    One by one, they fell. Dozens of powerful men dethroned amidst a wave of sexual misconduct allegations across the country and a cross-section of industries: admired celebrities, captains of industry, elected officials, and respected journalists all exposed and shamed by women of all ages, races, and political persuasions. It was nothing short of a cultural phenomenon and enormous emotional trigger for everyday women who, in solidarity publicly declared, many for the first time, "Me, too."

    Front Range Community College professor Dr. Catlyn Keenan is returning to the Longmont Public Library with a special program recounting the cultural #metoo movement on Thursday, January 24, from 7 to 8 pm. Keenan will describe the historical context for #metoo, from its genesis in 2006 to the surge of activity beginning in 2017, and examine the major figures involved on multiple sides of the movement, the gains that have been made, and the initiatives identified as most important. This program is open to adults and older teens, and parents are advised that the presentation will include frank conversations about sexualized violence.

    Dr. Keenan teaches philosophy, religious studies, and women and gender studies at Front Range Community College, where she has been employed since 2001. An avowed intersectional feminist, Dr. Keenan promotes equality and dignity for all people while recognizing that tearing down systems of privilege and oppression for the benefit of all is difficult work that requires people from diverse backgrounds to establish shared lines of communication. She specializes in gender and sexualities studies, religion and violence, and religion in popular culture.

  • Summit on Democracy Reform

    February 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
    First Unitarian Society of Denver, 1400 N Lafayette St, Denver, CO 80218, USA

    https://actionnetwork.org/ticketed_events/2019-policy-summit/

    Are you an attorney with a passion for voting rights? An activist dying to see Citizens United overturned? A student breaking into the world of civic engagement - or a parent who wants to create a more fair and equitable community for your kids?

    Take a deep dive into the pro-democracy reforms taking place across Colorado at our 2019 Policy Summit: Saturday, February 9 from 9 AM – 5 PM in Denver.

    The 2018 Election demonstrated how strongly Coloradans feel about passing meaningful democracy reform. Coloradans voted overwhelmingly to end gerrymandering through a new redistricting process; rejected a ballot initiative to dramatically increase contribution limits in state elections; and passed an innovative public financing initiative in the state’s largest city.

    But the work to improve democracy doesn’t end after election day. Join us to learn about the groundbreaking, innovative measures being taken to:

    Reform the Taxpayer Bill of Rights in 2020
    Implement Automatic Voter Registration across the state
    Adopt innovative new voting methods
    Secure a free and open internet in Colorado
    Protect the US Constitution by blocking an Article V Convention
    Count every Coloradan in the 2020 Census

    Participants will hear from Colorado’s leading experts about these important democracy reforms – and find out how they can get involved. Attendees will participate in breakout sessions where smaller groups will share ideas and develop concrete next steps.

    Early bird ticket sales end on Saturday, January 19th, and there are special discounts for students. Your ticket includes your lunch and a free drink at our afternoon networking event.
