Fridays at Newcomb with Deon Haywood, Founder of Women with a Vision

This event is part of Audre Lorde Week

featuring Deon Haywood

Date: Friday, February 7, 2014
Time: 12:00 PM
Building: Caroline Richardson Building
Location: uptown campus

This special Fridays at Newcomb will feature Deon Haywood, the Executive Director of Women With A Vision (WWV).  WWV is New Orleans-based community organization founded in 1991 to improve the lives of marginalized women at the intersection of HIV/AIDS, harm reduction, LGBTQ rights, reproductive justice, and criminalization.  In 2009, Deon oversaw the launch of WWAV’s NO Justice Project, a campaign to combat the sentencing of women and trans* people arrested for street-based sex work under Louisiana’s 203-yr-old “crime against nature” felony-level law, which resulted in a federal judicial ruling and the removal of more than 700 women from the sex offender registry.  Lunch will be provided.  Sponsored by Newcomb College Institute (NCI)

Tulane University’s Audre Lorde Week is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together to “develop tools for using human difference as a springboard for creative change.”  Like the work of Lorde herself, the experiences planned for the week combine critical analysis and love, lyricism and research, as well as struggle and collaboration (1) to address the ways in which inequity, bias, discrimination, alienation, and violence undermine our individual, collective and planetary health and (2) to develop holistic analyses and strategies for fueling well-being, justice, and positive social change. Central to the week’s events will be a consideration of how students, researchers, faculty, staff, and communities can create meaningful, reciprocal, accountable, and thriving relationships within the context of racism, sexism, heteronormativity, economic disparity, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and town/gown divides.  Admission to all events is free and open to the public!  Audre Lorde Week is co-sponsored by Tulane University’s Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CELT), Newcomb College Institute (NCI), Black Student Union (bSU), Queer Feminist Collective (QFC), and the Vagina Monologues.  For more information contact: OGSD at 504-314-2183.
