LGAND, the Latinx Graduate Association at Notre Dame, is asking for book donations for our fundraiser event on November 15th.
Last year, LGAND created a campus-wide campaign to raise funds for those affected by natural disasters in the Caribbean and in Mexico. This year, we would like to continue our community outreach efforts to sponsor a local Latinx organization: The Navari Student Outreach Clinic.
The Navari Clinic is run completely by students and physicians volunteers. Their mission is to provide basic health care to uninsured and under served members of South Bend, Indiana; which includes a big number of people with a Hispanic/Latinx background, as well as African American patients.
They offer Spanish speaking interpreters when needed. The patients are never charged, and they are provided with free medication when available. It runs solely on community grants and donations.
In order to raise funds for this organization, LGAND will have a Book and Bake Sale on November 15, 2018 in the Hesburgh Library Concourse.
We would really appreciate it if you could spread the word about this event when the time arrives. Our most urgent need right now, however, is collecting book donations to sell. We would be eternally grateful if you could help us by forwarding this message to everyone in your department and respective mailing list.
If anyone in your organization/mailing list is interested in donating books for our event, they can contact our Officers through firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you in advance for supporting our organization and our mission here at Notre Dame!

A central theme is the power of abstract art as a profound political choice and as a declaration of freedom. These artists not only resisted racial imagery, but also, pressure to create positive representations of Black Americans.
This lecture explores the art of Dana Chandler from the 1960s and ’70s. Through an examination of his activist imagery, her talk considers how Chandler negotiated intersections of popular culture and political action, and the ways in which such issues resonate in African American art today.
