Get on the Bus!
We are now in the most crucial month for the presidential election. With new polls being released every day and excitement intensifying across the country, you might be asking yourself, as a pro-choice New Yorker, what can I do to help? How can I contribute to national efforts?
Unlike any election in history, this one depends on individuals who are willing to get involved. Grassroots activities like knocking on doors, rallying and talking to voters will make the difference. That’s why NARAL Pro-Choice New York is asking you to…
Get on the bus!

Sexuality, Health and Human Rights
Tuesday, October 7, 2008
The Graduate Center
Skylight Room (Room 9100)
Sonia Corrêa, Coordinator of Sexuality Policy Watch, Brazilian Interdisciplinary AIDS Association, Rio de Janeiro
Richard Parker, Professor of Sociomedical Sciences, Columbia University
Rosalind Petchesky, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, Hunter College & the Graduate Center, CUNY
Join the authors to celebrate the publication of their new book – Sexuality, Health and Human Rights (Routledge, London and New York, August 2008). This ground breaking work provides a critical analysis of shifting theoretical perspectives and activist strategies regarding sexual politics and their larger geopolitical context in the twenty-first century. Long in the making, the book surveys the "Global 'Sex' Wars" in the shadow of both religious resurgence and political conservatism; new research agendas in the face of biomedical discourses and HIV/AIDS; and "The Promises and Limits of Sexual Rights," both from within international LGBTQI and feminist human rights activism and beyond. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
All CLAGS events, which are free and open to the public, are co-sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Studies Concentration in Lesbian and Gay/Queer Studies.
