The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) is part of a U.S. government effort to dramatically expand the number of Americans studying and mastering 14 foreign languages that are critical to national security and economic prosperity. It is a fully-funded 8–10-week overseas language and cultural immersion program for a diverse range of American undergraduate and graduate students at every level of language learning. Students of diverse disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply. Participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.

A Conversation on Reproductive Justice with Loretta J. Ross
Wed, Nov 2, 2022
5:00 - 7:00pm
Webinar + Watch Party
RSVP FOR GENEQ WATCH PARTY (Doors Open 4:45pm) -Gender Equity Resource Center, ASUC Event Services, Center for Race and Gender, and the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies along with UC San Diego Women’s Center for a moderated discussion and audience Q&A with Reproductive Justice and Human Rights Advocate and 2022 MacArthur Fellow, Loretta J. Ross. This is a free online event.
Moderated by Prof. Courtney Desiree Morris, the conversation begins with an introduction outlining the Reproductive Justice Framework, then discussing the impact of the Roe overturn. The talk will include strategies for gender inclusion, individual and community healing, as well as, thinking radically about abolition, reproductive freedom and community care.
How will Roe overturn continue to affect our communities, particularly, low-income communities of color and rural communities? What other liberties are at stake? And what can we do as individuals, students, faculty, staff, and organized groups? We hope Loretta Ross will provide wisdom in addressing these questions as well as inspiration and hope moving forward.
Loretta Ross is an award-winning, nationally-recognized expert on racism and racial justice, women's rights, and human rights. Her work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how intersectionality can fuel transformation. Ross is a visiting associate professor at Smith College (Northampton, MA) in the Program for the Study of Women and Gender, teaching courses on white supremacy, race and culture in America, human rights, and calling in the calling out culture.
Courtney Desiree Morris is a visual/conceptual artist and an assistant professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
