Health & Wellness Workshop

Have you ever struggled mentally or emotionally but felt too ashamed to reach out for help? You are not alone - 1 out of 5 adults will have a diagnosable mental illness in their lifetime. Although mental health is so important, we rarely talk about it with friends, family members, or in our communities. Let's change that! Come participate in this presentation to discuss the importance of mental health and highlight how together we can change our campus community to be more supportive of your mental health!

Flyer with information in joining a workshop about policing proof.

Policing Proof: Korryn Gaines, Body Cameras, and Anti-Blackness as a Scene

Date: September 14, 2022

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Location: via Zoom

This talk considers the killing of Korryn Gaines by the Baltimore County SWAT team in 2016, in the context of social media sites deactivating Gaines accounts as she tried to livestream the events. I consider how especially since the 1990s, racialized-gendered notions of documentation, culpability, and proof have played an integral role in legitimizing state-sanctioned harm.

By recognizing these signs, knowing how to start a conversation and where to turn for help, you have the power to make a difference - the power to save a life. Attend to learn the signs!

Flyer with information in joining a workshop about police reform and federal consent decrees.

Police Reform and Federal Consent Decrees, Dr. Zachary Powell, CSUSB 

Date: September 21, 2022

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Location: via Zoom

Join us for a presentation and discussion with Dr. Zachary Powell, Assistant Professor in CSUSB's Criminal Justice Department.

Police Reform has been, and will continue to be, an issue of grave importance in the United States. Each year, society learns of multiple instances of unconstitutional law enforcement practices that irreparably harm lives of many people. Despite the clear need to reform law enforcement agencies in America, efforts to do so often fall short. However,  the federal government possesses the power to force police departments to reform in certain situations. This power, mobilized through consent decrees, has received renewed attention and use under the Biden administration. This talk will provide an overview of the federal consent decree process and its impact on law enforcement today.

Series organizers: Dr. Mary Texeira (Sociology), Robie Madrigal (Pfau Library), Dr. Jeremy Murray (History), Stan Futch (President, WAG), and CSUSB students Marlo Brooks, Zoralynn Oglesby, Jade McDonald, Jaime Castro, Connie Cornejo, and Evelyn Jimenez.
