The Social Justice Initiative, the UC Davis Race Project, and the Ethnic and Cultural Affairs Commission among other key collaborators invite you to respond to this…CALL FOR PERFORMERS!

Calling all poets, wordsmiths, lyricists, spoken word artists, storytellers, and performers…

We are joining forces to bring you an evening of “Decolonizing Communities and Geographies at UC Davis and Beyond: Spoken Word, Performance and Activism” on Wednesday, May 28th from 6-8 pm. Mark your calendars.

You are invited to bring voice to your concerns!

We are intentionally creating a collaborative space across distinct communities where students can creatively speak out against police brutality, racial profiling, university injustices, unfair labor practices, homophobia, transphobia, Islamaphobia, and other forms of gendered racisms and oppressions on campus and beyond. This event builds on the Social Justice Initiative’s vision to keep the 2011 pepper spray incident in our consciousness as we work to build a more just and sustainable environment at UC Davis, particularly one that is critical of white supremacy and the historical legacies of genocide, slavery, and colonization.

If you are interested in performing, please contact Alberto at or Susy at with the following information by Sunday, May 18th:

•   Name and email

•   Title of performance piece

•   Brief description of performance (less than 100 words)


We hope you join us for this social justice centered evening of art, performance, spoken word, testimony, and organizing!  Spread the word…
