📚 "American: A Field Guide to Citizenship" reading

When: Wednesday, October 3, 6pm – 7:30pm
Where: A Room of One’s Own, 315 W Gorham St, Madison

Hosted by A Room of One's Own

"A Room of One's Own is excited to welcome Silvia Hidalgo, author of 'How to be an American: A Field Guide to Citizenship'!

The current political climate has left many of us wondering how our government actually operates. Sure, we learned about it in school, but if put to the test, how many of us can correctly explain the branches of government? The history of politics? The differences and connections between local government and federal government? Enter How to Be an American. While author and illustrator Silvia Hidalgo was studying for her citizenship test, she quickly found that the materials provided by the government were lacking. In order to more easily absorb the information, Hidalgo started her own illustrated reference to civics facts and American history essentials. She’s collected her findings in How to Be an American, a freshly designed and illustrated two-color guide to all things America.

Born in Costa Rica, Silvia Hidalgo moved to the United States in 1998. Currently an artist as well as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, she has worked for corporations such as SRAM and Motorola. She lives in Chicago."

When: Wednesday, October 3, 7pm – 9pm
Where: Room 1101, George L Mosse Humanities Building, 455 N Park St, Madison

Hosted by Madison Socialist Alternative and Democratic Socialists of America - Madison

"Socialism is back in electoral politics! For the first time in many decades, openly self-described socialist candidates running radical insurgent campaigns around the country and challenging the Democratic Party establishment are winning. Some have lost while still making a big impact. All have tapped into a growing and deepening anti-establishment mood, a hunger for bold left politics to drastically transform living conditions and to build a more just society. So what’s next? How do we build on these successes or near-successes to win these platforms?"

Hosted by A Room of One's Own

"A Room of One's Own is thrilled to welcome Charline Carruthers, activist and author of Unapologetic: A Black, Queer and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements!

Drawing on Black intellectual and grassroots organizing traditions, including the Haitian Revolution, the US civil rights movement, and LGBTQ rights and feminist movements, Unapologetic challenges all of us engaged in the social justice struggle to make the movement for Black liberation more radical, more queer, and more feminist. This book provides a vision for how social justice movements can become sharper and more effective through principled struggle, healing justice, and leadership development. It also offers a flexible model of what deeply effective organizing can be, anchored in the Chicago model of activism, which features long-term commitment, cultural sensitivity, creative strategizing, and multiple cross-group alliances. And Unapologetic provides a clear framework for activists committed to building transformative power, encouraging young people to see themselves as visionaries and leaders.

Charlene A. Carruthers is a Black, queer feminist community organizer and writer with over 10 years of experience in racial justice, feminist and youth leadership development movement work. As the founding national director of BYP100 (Black Youth Project 100), she has worked alongside hundreds of young Black activists to build a national base of activist member-led organization of Black 18-35 year olds dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. Her passion for developing young leaders to build capacity within marginalized communities has led her to work on immigrant rights, economic justice and civil rights campaigns nationwide. She has led grassroots and digital strategy campaigns for national organizations including the Center for Community Change, the Women's Media Center, ColorOfChange.org and National People's Action, as well as being a member of a historic delegation of young activists in Palestine in 2015 to build solidarity between Black and Palestinian liberation movements.

Her work has been covered in several publications including the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Reader, The Nation, Ebony and Essence Magazines. She has appeared on CNN, Democracy Now!, BBC and MSNBC. Charlene has also written for theRoot.com, Colorlines and the Boston Review.."
