Andre Lorde Days

Over the course of the Spring semester, Tulane University hosts a series of speakers, roundtables, films, and celebrations that offer students, faculty, staff, and community members the opportunity to come together to "develop tools for using human difference as a springboard for creative change." Like the work of Audre Lorde herself, the experiences planned for the semester combine critical analysis and love, lyricism, and research, as well as challenges and collaboration (1) to address the ways in which inequality, bias, discrimination, alienation, and violence undermine individual, collective, and planetary health and (2) to develop holistic analyses and strategies for fueling well-being, justice, and positive social change. Central to Audre Lorde Days 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!

Finding Intersectionality Together (FIT)

Finding Intersectionality Together (FIT) is a new student organization that begins with the premises that (1) our lives are shaped by multiple and intersecting forms of oppression, resistance, and culture and (2) individuals identity in multiple and intersecting ways along lines of class, race, sexuality, gender, dis/ability, etc. Our organization seeks to support and develop the perspective of students who often move through single-issue environments where their multiple identities often go unacknowledged. FIT seeks to always recognize the mobility and mixed nature of identity and social problems. We hold meetings that alternate between community building, education, service, and having FUN! We also sponsor an annual retreat on the Gulf of Mexico.
