So this is sort of a bonus episode that we wanted to put up this weekend, it wasn’t intended to be for Changemakers but Zaneta was cool with us putting this chat up for everyone to enjoy.
Zaneta works in the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities here at Rutgers University and had a lot of awesome stuff to say about being a leader and someone who makes social change.
Please enjoy and share!
R U a Changemaker???
Be a Rutgers Changemakers Ambassador!
Student Life is looking for Changemakers Ambassadors to assist and staff Rutgers Changemakers Week from February 10-14, 2014. Students will be asked to volunteer and run events as well as promote and share events through social media. We encourage students to be bold, curious, innovative, and confident that they can make positive change in their communities. As an Ambassador, students will receive great perks including a behind-the-scenes look at all of our events with the chance to meet our amazing Changemakers! Those who are interested can sign up at http://bit.ly/RUChangemaker by December 3 and are encouraged to attend our Interest Meeting on Thursday, December 5 at 8:30pm in the Livingston Student Center Gathering Lounge.
Join Queer Caucus and the center for our annual Trans* Day of Remembrance including an open mic, a moment of silence, and our Rutgers letter writing campaign to CeCe McDonald. It’s happening here at the Center for Social Justice & LGBT Communities in Tillett Hall 247 | Livingston Campus from 8-10pm.
Queer Caribbean Writing
It is not often that the Department of Latino and Hispanic Caribbean Studies is able to offer a course like this, specifically, one that explores the intersection of queer theory and Caribbean studies. As such, Prof. Cummings’ course represents a major opportunity for the University’s undergraduate students. Don’t miss out!

Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.
Greetings friends and Changemakers!
We are premiering our first episode of the Changemakers Podcast today! We will be posting these episodes weekly as the actual week of events (February 10-14, 2014) approaches!
You may be asking yourself “What is ally week?” or “How can I be a better ally?”
We are asking folks to take the RU Ally Week Pledge: http://www.change.org/petitions/ru-ally-week-2013-take-the-pledge-change-the-world
with the hope that we can work together to build a more authentic and just community here on campus with a focus on issues of race, sexuality, gender, class, ability, age and any social identities that are salient for you!
You can take your “I am an Ally because…” photo, download our “Ways to be an Ally” checklist, and attend one of our many evening events every day this week!
