Weekly Meeting + Event!

Join us for our weekly meeting, at 8:15 PM in the Dodge Room of Earl Hall — every Wednesday, and new members are welcome any time.

Also, on Thursday, check out a screening of United in Anger, a documentary based on oral history about ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), a prolific AIDS activist group formed in NYC but spread around the country that still holds actions today. Here’s the official info:

Join Queer Awareness Month 2012 and the Student Global AIDS Campaign as we screen UNITED IN ANGER: A History of ACT UP.

The film is an inspiring documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Using oral histories of members of ACT UP, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect. Jim Hubbard, co-producer of the film, will be present after the screening for a Q&A.

Non-Columbia attendees must RSVP two days before the screening to get into the building.

7 p.m., Thursday, October 11; Satow Room, 5th floor Lerner Hall.
