Join lesbian activist and attorney Rosemary Metrailer on Friday, Dec. 8, for a screening of her documentary, “Legends of Courage,” from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in PAC 201.

As a part of the film series for the LGBTQIA subcommittee of Staff Equity & Diversity and Student Equity, “Legends of Courage,” an LGBT oral history and documentary film series project, was founded in 2013 to preserve the rich social and political history of advocacy by men and women who led the movement for LGBT equality in the Sacramento region.

Together with 3D Media Solutions, the project focuses on a collection of filmed oral history interviews with individuals who played significant roles in this struggle. The inaugural documentary film features Metrailer, whom Sacramento City College has the opportunity to bring to campus to share her documentary and tell her story of courage and forthright strength in advancing civility for LGBT+ people.

Among the invited guests with the possibility to attend: civil rights advocates and LGBT activists, Laurie McBride, Dennis Mangers (former assembly member), Linda Birner, former publisher of MGW, law partners and civil rights attorneys, Carolyn Langenkamp, and Tami Buscho, and former Mayors Anne Rudin and Heather Fargo.

Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for two-year colleges, whose main mission is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders.

SCC Health Services will host an event called “Paws to Relax,” featuring certified therapy dogs from Pet Partners, on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Center.

This is an opportunity for students to break away from their studies for some stress-relieving puppy snuggles. But we know students aren’t the only ones who needs a break — faculty and staff are also welcome to take “paws” in their busy day and swing by the event!

Phi Theta Kappa is holding  a food drive now through Nov. 28. Help us grow our stash of non-perishable food items to be donated to those in need this holiday season!

Drop off donations at the food bins on campus or the SCC Foundation Office, Rodda Hall North, RHN-222.

On Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, join us for a rally at the Student Center to take stock of the food donations, meet Hughie the Panther, show your gratitude and take an #unselfie, enjoy tasty snacks, and learn how you can volunteer in the community.

Additionally, you can donate online to the Student Emergency Fund, which provides assistance to students in the times they need it most.

Do you have an old laptop or computer accessories at home and you’re not sure what to do with them? Donate for a student in need!

Computers 4 Kids (C4K) will wipe the computer, make repairs and get them to students in need of a computer. You can drop them off at the SCC Main Campus in Business 221a or at Computers 4 Kids, 2455 West Capitol Ave., Suite 106, in West Sacramento.
