by Edward Mamary

Dear CASA Students, Faculty, and Staff:

I am pleased to announce our 15th Annual Sexual Diversity events!  Our students have chosen this year’s theme, “Embracing Sexual Diversity: Continuing Activism and Advocacy for Change.”  We have a series of exciting events planned to commemorate 15 years of celebrating sexual diversity.  The main event will be held on Monday, March 11th, 2013 from 5:30 to 8 pm in the Barrett Ballroom in the SJSU Student Union.  

Our featured speaker is Charlene Strong, a nationally respected advocate for social justice and civil rights issues including marriage equality and non-discrimination policies. She is a widely published writer and sought after speaker, presenting to universities, companies, public forums, nonprofits and government agencies across the country including the CIA, the Washington State legislature, and the World Affairs Council. Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire appointed Ms. Strong to the prestigious Washington State Human Rights Commission; she is currently serving a new five year term. Charlene Strong is the subject of the award-winning documentary, “For My Wife…” which tells the story of how she became an advocate for equality following the loss of her wife, Kate Fleming a flash flood in Seattle in 2006.  Please preview the trailer!    Faculty, please encourage your students to attend this main event for extra credit.
