Black Lives Matter Speaker Series featuring CeCe McDonald

  • 5 p.m. PDT Wednesday, July 15
  • Virtual event on Zoom
  • CeCe McDonald is a transgender prison-reform activist who was sentenced to 41 months in prison for manslaughter after a racist and transphobic attack against her turned deadly. After this incident, McDonald was arrested and imprisoned after using deadly force to protect herself. Experiencing the inhumane treatment of prisoners firsthand, McDonald began speaking out against the criminal justice system. For McDonald, the issue of safety included her status as a trans-woman in a men's prison. Transgender prisoners were assigned to prisons based on their sex assigned at birth rather than their gender identity. Free CeCe, a documentary about her experiences, focused on the issue of violence against trans-women of color.
  • Hosted by the LGBTQA Office, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Women's Center, the Center for Volunteerism & Social Action and Fraternity & Sorority Life
