GITA's annual Bridge Speaker event serves as a bridge between Black History Month in February and Women’s History Month in March. In the event's 31st year, GITA and its community partners (i.e., Africana Studies, Chicana/o Studies, Social Work, TRiO, CAMP, Immigrant Services, and student org Building Allies for Diversity) invite you to dialogue about the BIPOC "Safer Space" Resolution and to learn about what it means to be antiracist from Black Feminist Queer cultural/memory worker, curator, and organizer, Cara Page!
About Cara Page:
Cara Page is a Black Feminist Queer cultural/memory worker, curator, and organizer. She comes from a long ancestral legacy of organizers and cultural workers from the Southeast to the Northeast. For the past 20+ years, she has fought for LGBTQGNC and People of Color liberation, and organized in the Southeast with movement builders such as SONG, Project South, and the Atlanta Transformative Justice Collaborative and has built with many organizers, healers and cultural workers across the country.
Triple F Films is our seasonal film screening event.

Triple F Films Presents: The Invisible Man (2020)
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, friends of GITA enjoyed a screening of 2020 thriller, The Invisible Man in collaboration with Denver's Sie Film Center! Participants were provided with a free watch link and snack pack at the historic local film center and open discussion followed the screening to unpack the movie.
This event came together through GITA's commitment to community engagement in a virtual setting in light of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for everyone who helped pull this event together and a BIG thank you to Sie Film Center for hosting this screening!
Our Fall virtual events schedule is in the works! If you would like to collaborate with our team or have any burning ideas for events you'd like to see on campus in the future, please give us a shout.
