On the evening of April 11 (6:30pm), the second Feminist Salon of this term will be hosted to engage in an in-depth discussion about domestic worker and care worker organizing with renowned activists and scholars. Please see below for the panelist information and location.
They will provide delicious food (vegan and vegetarian options available) and they ask faculty members to bring a bottle of wine or any kind of alcoholic/nonalcoholic beverage. Graduate students are invited to just bring themselves. Please RSVP by March 24, 2018 to Hae Yeon Choo (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that they know how much food to prepare (if you have any food restrictions, please let them know, so that they can plan accordingly).
