"We’re learning a lot about this thing called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This war time disease. This combat fatigue diagnosis. And we read something worth sharing. Fact, urban youth are twice as likely to get Post Traumatic Stress Disorder than soldiers who are coming home from war. So tell me, what’s the difference between homicide in the streets and bloodshed on the battlefields of Iraq. […] The only difference there is between a soldier with PTSD and one of my students with it is that a soldier gets to leave the battlefield, while my kids go home to it."

The Night of Cultural Resistance (NoCR) is the culminating event of our Week of Cultural Resistance (WoCR) which is scheduled for 03/10/13-03/14/13. Every year NoCR features live performances, art making, food, and various other activities to celebrate our resilience and honor the ways in which communities of color continue to resist and flourish within the university. NoCR is more than a concert or a show, it is an opportunity for communities on and off campus to come together and share stories, skills and resources. We are excited to be holding NoCR on Memorial Glade this year in order to increase visibility and access!!This year’s theme is ROOT Y(OUR) FUTURE! The theme is inspired by the 45th Anniversary of the first twLF strike at UC Berkeley. We invite folks to not just remember twLF but to also continue living by, and creating with, the goals and values that fed the movement at the time. Community Building Activities:With the values of rootedness, resiliency, creativity, and survival we have created community building activities which allow folks to engage in embodying these movements. Come enjoy silk screening, seed planting, pot decorating, collective knowledge building, and selfieLove for a night filled with beautiful energies. Performances by:Body Waves Barbara Jane Reyes Yosimar ReyesYoung Gifted and Black Las CafeterasAnd special performance by TWO surprise artists!!

Featured Artists: L Frank Manriquez Celia Herrera Rodriguez Fan Lee Warren   Exhibition Description: We three visual artists have come together on these walls because, in certain important ways, we share a worldview. As queer women of color, that view is, most days, wrought out of survival, stubbornness, and good humor. Our political commentary is wry and daily, written on napkins, full paintings, and small-size markings that document and dissect for meaning. Mostly, we are friends who as artists have been observing and conversing with one another and our communities for over twenty years. —chr
