Dismantle, from a feminist perspective, all forms of oppression, including but not limited to those based on ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Advocate for an equitable environment free from violence and harassment based on gender, race, and sexual orientation.
Create an anti-racist, non-sexist, queer-affirmative space where all people can feel valued and safe.
Facilitate and strengthen connections among people across lines of difference through programming and educational campaigns.
Integrate an appreciation of Women's Gender and Multicultural Studies across the disciplines.

Planned Parenthood and Thanksgiving

Check out this article by Planned Parenthood regarding reproductive rights and health, and how to broach the subject at Thanksgiving dinner. This topic is often hard to talk about on any other day, so on a major holiday it can be even more difficult. Families with diverse viewpoints and ideologies gathering at one location can be a breeding ground for arguments, so learning how to effectively navigate these conversations while maintaining peace is important. Give it a read, and maybe it will help diffuse tension or open new doors for families at Thanksgiving!
