The Cal State LA Student Veterans Organization and the Veterans Resource Center are hosting a Memorial Day ceremony to honor service members who made the
ultimate sacrifice. Please join us for a 21-gun salute, presentation of colors, musical performance and guest speakers as we pay respect to our fallen heroes.

Join us to learn more about Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Cal State L.A., and to recognize the achievements of those graduating with a minor or post baccalaureate certificate in WGSS.
Selma director Ava DuVernay will be the keynote speaker. She will discuss “The Power of the Lens: Black Women as Visual Griots of the 21st Century.” DuVernay will also discuss filmmaking from a Black woman’s perspective. A question-and-answer session will follow her talk. For her most recent film, Selma, DuVernay became the first African American woman to be nominated for a Golden Globe and the first to have a film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Entitled "Ties that Bind: A Transnational Family from China to the U.S.," the exhibit is about the extraordinary family of John Chen, a Cal State L.A. alumnus. It tells a story of resilience that is both representative and exceptional to the experiences of many Chinese American families in the early 20th century.
Opening reception: May 28 at 2 p.m.
