EQUALITY DAY OF ACTION!

When:
February 24, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

Kansas State Capitol, SW 10th & Jackson, Topeka, KS, 66612, United States

Equality Kansas, Great Plains chapter of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, The MainStream Coalition, and the ACLU of Kansas invite you to a day of action at the Kansas statehouse. Talk to legislators, join us for lunch, and cap the day off with a rally for equality!

In the morning, members and supporters of all four organizations will gather at the statehouse in Topeka, and will have the opportunity to visit with members of the state legislature. We will provide handout information that you can take to your representative and senator’s offices. We will also provide a few 30-minute training sessions in the morning that will help you in your conversations with elected officials.

At noon, join us for the Brightline Legislative Luncheon. The luncheon is for legislators and individuals committed to separation of church and state. Enjoy lunch together, make connections with legislators, and hear thoughts from elected officials on both sides of the aisle. SEATING IS LIMITED. For more information and to reserve your seat, see http://brightlinecoalition.blogspot.com/

At 1pm, join us for a rally on the south steps of the Capitol. We will be speaking out against discriminatory bills such as HB2453 and others. A complete list of speakers will be published soon.

After the rally, there will be more opportunities to visit with your lawmakers. If you would like to schedule a visit with your representative or senator, please contact Thomas Witt at Equality Kansas, who will help schedule your meeting time. He can be reached at 316-683-1706, or by email at info@equalitykansas.com.

PLEASE NOTE: Flags and signs are permitted outdoors only. They are not allowed inside the Capitol building.

ARRIVING AT THE CAPITOL:

The Kansas State Capitol is at 300 SW 10th St, Topeka, KS.

The public entrance is at the intersection of SW 8th and SW Van Buren in Topeka, KS (http://goo.gl/maps/X987F), on the north side of the Capitol building. Be prepared for airport-style security! All visitors must pass through a security checkpoint, and all bags are screened through an x-ray machine.

Parking can be difficult. For a good spot, plan to arrive in Topeka early.

• There is metered parking around the Capitol. The meters cost $1 per hour, accept quarters, and are limited from 1 hour to 10 hours depending on where you are parked. Overtime parking tickets are $8 for the first ticket, with fines increasing if you’ve had Topeka parking tickets in the past.

• There is additional parking in per-hour parking garages on 8th near Kansas Street (http://goo.gl/maps/2dbUj) and 9th near Kansas Street (http://goo.gl/maps/ZdK5A), within easy walking distance of the capitol.

• There is a two-hour parking lot southwest of the capitol at SW 10th and Topeka Blvd (http://goo.gl/maps/NQtzB). If you plan to attend the rally only, this parking lot will be a good option for you.

Questions or comments, contact Thomas Witt with Equality Kansas, 316-683-1706, or email info@equalitykansas.com

23rd Annual Cultural Studies Symposium with Lisa Cartwright and Steven Rubin

When:
February 21, 2014 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Where:
K-State Alumni Center, 17th Street and Anderson Avenue, Manhattan, KS, 66506, United States

Join us for a lecture by Lisa Cartwright (U of California, San Diego) and Steven Rubin (Penn State U) on “Infrastructures of Power: New Topographies of Wind in Kansas.”

Since 2009, Cartwright and Rubin have been engaged in the documentation and analysis of the everyday work experience and interaction between people, land, and technology in some of the farming and ranching communities throughout Kansas that have been impacted by wind industry development. Their talk shares the results of this multi-year visual and sensory ethnography. Their project engages in a tradition of studying landscape through photography, video, and interpretive multimodal art practice used to interpret changes in regional infrastructures. Major concerns include: How is wind understood as a source of power to be harvested like a crop? How is everyday local experience impacted by a new energy infrastructure on farmland that continues to be worked in conventional agricultural ways?

Their analysis shows how the double-cropping of wind and grain in Kansas is a practice in which boundaries and intersections are negotiated not only between the energy and agriculture industries, but also between wind-rich and wind-poor landowners, between farmers and ranchers who support and oppose wind development, and among ranch- or farmhands and wind technicians, who must learn how to share the same fields. Their talk includes attention to the historical place of landscape photography as a technology of power, the matter of wind as a uniquely invisible and newly monetized force, and the legacy of land use interpretation as a means of understanding the everyday life experience of people in a region as its industrial infrastructure changes in ways that profoundly alter the fabric of community.

Sponsored by the Department of English, the College of Agriculture, the College of Engineering, and the Offices of the President and Provost.

Come and see the hilarious play HARVEY at Manhattan Arts Center. Tickets are on sale now. Directed by Kim Riley.

Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey – whom Elwood describes as a six-foot three-and-one-half-inch tall pooka resembling an anthropomorphic rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing and decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare herself and her daughter Myrtle Mae further embarrassment.
