Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber screening
PSU Smith Center

As part of the Rising Up for Human Dignity 2017 Film Festival, join us for a screening of Ahead of Time: The Extraordinary Journey of Ruth Gruber.

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day was this past Sunday, April 23rd. Before the film starts, Rabbi Ariel Stone will lead us as we will take a moment to remember all of those lost during the Holocaust and join together to pledge to work towards "Never Again!" We are honored to have April Slabosheski, Holocaust Educator at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education and Julia Reihs, local photographer, videographer, writer and storyteller with us for an engaging talk-back after the film. Attendees will also have a chance to share a reflection for a Together We Remember (TWR) project. TWR is a global month of remembrance and activism for all victims of genocide and mass atrocities.

At age 24, Ruth Gruber became a New York Herald Tribune reporter and photographer and the same year was the first journalist to enter the Soviet Arctic. A trusted member of the Roosevelt Administration during WWII, she was given a dangerous secret mission. A feminist before feminism, Ruth was never just an observer, she was a participant in the making of history. Run time: 1 hour 13 min

Doors at 6:30pm. Film starts at 7pm. PSU's Smith Memorial Student Union, Room 296-8

Rising Up for Human Dignity 2017 Film Festival is a collaboration of The Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project at Portland State University and the Never Again Coalition. www.neveragaincoalition.org/rising-up

PNCA Library Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon
PNCA - Pacific Northwest College of Art

Join us for the second of two Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons this Spring in Portland! These events require no previous experience and are open to people of all gender identities. Just bring a laptop and charging cable and we'll provide everything else! Snacks and experienced, dependable childcare provided! Please RSVP via the EventBrite link...this is not mandatory, but helpful to the organizers, especially if you need childcare.

About the event:

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the uneven gender participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We all know that this bias is not just about gender. Women of color are often the least represented voices in history. Let’s change that! This event is about amplifying voice. Attendees are encouraged to edit any entry of interest related to arts, feminism, gender studies, activism and LGBTQ issues. All are welcome who care about the representation of all genders in Wikipedia’s content and among its contributors. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and laptops. Bring your own laptop if you have one and any ideas for entries that need updating or creation. We will have a couple extra computers available. For the editing-averse, we urge you to stop by to show your support, learn more about this project, and eat snacks.
