ALTERNATIVE FALL BREAK: OCTOBER 12th - 16th, 2012

The Women's Center, in conjunction with the Baldwin Scholars Program, is offering the opportunity for students to travel with us to Apopka, Florida to participate in an incredible exchange of learning, activism, advocacy and awareness with the Hope CommUnity Center.  With issues around immigration all over the news these days, there are many questions that don't always get addressed. A few of these questions are: What about women?  How do they experience immigration?  What are the narratives of struggle and strength of women in immigrant communities? How do these struggles affect entire families?  In particular, how are children impacted by the reality in these narratives?  How do those experiences connect to women students at Duke?  Join us for 5 interactive days of exploring immigration & gender.  It will change and expand your world view.

We hope to see you at our Information Session on September 4, 2012 at the Women's Center (7PM).  We will answer questions and offer more in depth information to assist you in preparing for this trip.  Applications are due no later than Friday, September 7, 2012.  LATE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!  Remember, there are only 10 slots available, so please submit your application today!
