Quinn will be giving a brief talk on debate at ETHS, this is a perfect time for 8th graders who are going into ETHS to hear about the program! He'll answer questions about Afro-pessimism and critical race theory that he has been introduced to in debate at ETHS.

They'll be a slide show with people and images that been influential to him.

You'll be able to buy the t-shirt he's creating that night, place an order for his T-shirt #1, purchase a post card or make a donation to his fundraiser!

We hope to see you there!

[Backstory: A few weeks ago, Quinn asked me if he could got to a summer debate camp that focuses on issues of race and gender equity. I just started my business this year and I explained, that while we can't afford to send him, I thought he was old enough to start a business and raise some money. Quinn has started a small t-shirt business and he's very close to having all the money he needs. If you would like to learn more, see his 45 second video about it, buy a t-shirt or make a donation, please click on the link in the comments. Thanks!]

Nasty Women Evanston Art Exhibit

We are excited to host this pop up event on Saturday, June 3, 6-9 p.m.

From the organizers: We are a sister show to the Nasty Women Art Exhibition that was produced in NYC in January. It sold out and raised over $42,000 for Planned Parenthood! And now Nasty Women Exhibitions are being produced all over the world!

We know what a mighty force the women of Evanston are, so we just had to bring a Nasty Women Art exhibition to town! Along with our neighbors on the North Shore we hope to do our part to let our voices be heard and contribute to a worthy cause.

Whether you’re a women, man or self identified, we welcome your support, creativity, donations and especially your presence at our kick ass event on June 3!

Please RSVP via this Evite
