"Let us be the ancestors our descendants will thank."

“Line 3 is a crime against the environment and Indigenous rights, waters and lands,” said Winona LaDuke, executive director of Indigenous rights organization Honor the Earth. “Enbridge has raced to build this line before the Federal court has passed judgment on our appeals about the line.”

 "Indigenous Communities have historically lived in harmony with the Earth. Highly evolved, they knew that they must be gentle and respectful of the land that they rely on for everything. They studied the local flora and fauna and lived according to the seasons - Modern society could take a leaf out of their playbook."

Dr. Villegas is an assistant professor in American Studies who received his Ph.D. in Culture and Theory at the University of California, Irvine.

His book, Manifest Technique: Hip Hop, Empire, and Visionary Filipino American Culture, examines Filipino Americans’ decades-long commitment to crafting, worldmaking, and collaborating in hip hop culture. He argues that hip hop culture has operated as a critical site where Filipino Americans have been investigating their racial position in history and the world, thus expanding the opportunities for these practitioners to author their popular representation.

Facilitated by De Anza's new Faculty Director for the Office of Equity, Social Justice, and Multicultural Education, the office of Equity invites you to collaborate with her, to define and apply important I.D.E.A. concepts (i.e., Identity and Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Equality, Access and Acceptance).  Collective definitions lead to greater support for collective action. Let’s get started on working together to define what I.D.E.A. means to De Anza and share strategies and tools to elevate I.D.E.A. in our individual classrooms and learning community spaces.

Learn more about reading groups and activities>>

Join this shared experience of intellectual engagement and dialogue! Everyone is invited to read and participate in a collegewide conversation about “The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart” by Alicia Garza, co-creator of the Black Lives Matter Global Network. Check the "One Book" webpage for information and upcoming activities.

Activist Alicia Garza started a movement that changed how we think about race. One of the pioneers behind the phrase #BlackLivesMatter, Alicia co-founded the Black Lives Matter Network in 2013 and remains a seminal leader in the effort to organize for racial justice. In her new book, The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart, Garza relays details and lessons from her life working as a community organizer.

Garza argues for a new outlook in community organizing in which social movements are more accommodating and understanding of burgeoning activists. Join her at INFORUM to learn more about what it takes to effectively mobilize people around the issues that matter the most, from climate justice to voter suppression.
