Violence Against Women Screening

The film screening last night was marvelous. About a dozen students came. We ate cupcakes and watched the film. Next, we watched part of the online discussion, followed by our own discussion, which proved most interesting. The whole night was so fun and productive that the participants decided to make it a regular occurrence. A new student group will be forming called Cupcakes and Causes. More information to come and look for its new Facebook group.

Chickumbuso Bracelets

We have 13 of the bracelets made by the women in Chickumbuso. Stop by room 211 or bring money to our next meeting as they will go quick. They are normally $20, but only $15 for LHS students. This is about enough to feed a family for a month.
