Marigold must face rogue border patrol agents, oil tycoons, and a hesitant tribal council as she struggles to keep her ancestral lands intact for future generations. Paralleling her fight are the events surrounding the Gadsden Purchase of 1853, the building of a transcontinental railroad through Indigenous lands, Manifest Destiny, and the redrawing of the Mexican-American border in the name of southern imperialism. Marigold is determined that history does not repeat itself.

Rethinking Refugee Trauma and Mental Health - Strand Book Store
May 17, 2019 - New York

How are refugees adjusting to life in the US - given the current political climate? Research from multiple disciplines reveals that humans not only need each other to survive but also to thrive. However, we live in a world that divides us along lines such as gender, race, class, religion, and ableism making it harder to connect. Many of us assume that our current world is a natural progression of human nature, and therefore the only possibility. We privilege western models of mental health that focus its lens on individual capacities. This approach often ignores macro-level influences that shape such capacities. This Olio addresses some of the assumptions made in the field of psychology on trauma and healing and argues for a multidisciplinary approach to have a more comprehensive understanding of macro-level forces and how they impact individual capacities. How we conceptualize trauma and healing is embedded within particular historical, political, social, and economic contexts. Using dynamic systems thinking allows us to situate this knowledge in its particular context, trace how these constructs have changed over time and reveal different possibilities of how we might effective...

What do you get when you combine a corrupt gynecologist, plastic surgery look-a-likes, a lascivious surgeon, a jittery liberal engaged to a staunch conservative, a flighty receptionist, a mysterious man hired for his sexual dexterity and a forgetful Holocaust survivor? You get Knock It Off!, a new farce debuting at Theater for the New City starting May 2nd. Karen Lynn Gorney, star of the movie “Saturday Night Fever” and “All My Children” joins the cast as Eyphah along with Peter Zachari, Lori Funk, Joey Mirabile, Nora Falk, Scott Ahearn, Amandina Altomare and Brian Anthony Simmons. Four years ago playwright Peter Zachari mounted the first version of this play, which was titled, Under the Knife. “When I originally presented this show we set the farce in modern day but it always felt like it could work in a different time period,” says Zachari. “Dr. Katz is a disgraceful gynecologist who will do anything for a buck so I thought, ‘What if we set it in 1973 when the abortion debate was swirling and the play opens on the day of the Roe v. Wade announcement?’ Now Katz has been secretly and illegally performing abortions for cash under the table and is dreading the Supreme Court d... (read more)

I'm gonna hand them this book and say 'No more horror stories, here are some solutions.'" —Kathleen Hanna, Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, and The Julie Ruin Shawna Potter, singer for the band War On Women, has tackled sexism and harassment in lyrics and on stage for years. Taking the battle to music venues themselves, she has trained night clubs and community spaces in how to create safer environments for marginalized people.
