OLLI Colleges Nine and Ten Events

OLLI is fortunate to have a home on the UCSC Campus at Colleges Nine and Ten. We have a wonderful meeting space for our monthly general meetings in the Multipurpose Room. Moreover we have the opportunity to participate in Colleges Nine and Ten campus activities like the Alternative Spring Break.

In 2017-18 there will be many events that will be highlighted here that will be of interest to OLLI members.

Practical Activism Conference

Saturday, October 21, 2017 • 10:30 AM to 5:00 PMColleges Nine and Ten Multipurpose Room
This is a day long free event including workshops (see list below) prepared and run by students on topics of concern to them (and to many of us). It is a completely student run event, although it also attracts people from the community who seek opportunities to meet and share ideas with students who, like us, wish to learn more about the issues that confront us, and the options that people have to address them.

Check out this student made the Practical Activism video to get a sense of the energy and diversity of this event. OLLI members who wish to attend can just come for the whole day or for just a few hours.

Here is a list of workshops that will be offered:

• ICE: Raiding Our Rights

• White Feminism and Intersectionality In Practice

• The Syrian Refugee Crisis in the Middle East

• Atrocities Faced by LGBTQIA+ International Communities

• Model Minority Myth

• Organizing for Power: Building Your Inner Activist and Fostering Skills for Action

• Black and White: The Static Stereotypes of TV and Film

• The Growing Force of the Black Lives Matter Movement

• From Polar Bears to People: Changing the Conversation around Climate Change

• Resistance in the Age of Trump
