“with one of those colleges even providing students with the supplies”
The Women’s March is losing support left and right for its Anti-Semitic connections. Not in academia however, where it’s actually being promoted.
Campus Reform reports:
Colleges promote anti-Trump Women’s March. One offers free poster supplies.
Students on campuses across the country are being offered opportunities to prepare posters for next Saturday’s Women’s March events scheduled to occur in multiple cities, with one of those colleges even providing students with the supplies.
At Iowa State University, students are encouraged to stop by the union and be inspired by a playlist of Beyonce, Nina Simone, and Gloria Gaynor as they make posters with materials provided at no cost to the attendees. Students will also have the chance to pick up a feminist button or make their own for $0.50.
At the University of California, Berkeley, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive will offer an opportunity to make posters with artist Masako Miki, who is currently a solo exhibitor there. Miki has already commissioned a print to commemorate the 2019 Women’s March. Miki’s art piece continues “the tradition of collaborating with artists and activists to create political poster art using the museum’s Risograph print resource,” according to the event’s webpage.
And, at the University of Pennsylvania, residents of Riepe College House are invited to make posters with the Ware Women in Leadership residential program in preparation for the Philadelphia Women’s March.
The Women’s March is an annual protest event that started on Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Donald Trump became president. The movement’s website specifically names two of its leaders, Linda Sarsour, whom critics have accused of being anti-Semitic and having a favorable view of Sharia law, and Tamika Mallory, who once referred to Louis Farrakhan as the “greatest of all time.” Mallory, who is scheduled to speak at the University of North Carolina, Asheville for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, said she disagrees with Farrakhan on his views of women, Jews, and LGBT people.
