Cinco de Mayo is a date of great importance for the Mexican and Chicano communities. It marks the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Although the Mexican army was eventually defeated, the “Batalla de Puebla” came to represent a symbol of Mexican unity and patriotism.
Many people wrongly equate Cinco De Mayo with Mexican Independence Day which was on September 16, 1810, nearly a fifty-year difference, and was a revolt against the Spanish colonial government.
Co-sponsored by Hoch-Shanahan Dining Services, Dean of Students Activities
& Office of Institutional Diversity.
Hey, Hetero! is a poster project by PRISM. If you’re on campus, you’ve probably seen at least a few of the posters by now. Have comments, questions, thought? Leave them on the blog. Or come to the Hoch Aviation Room on April 19th at 5:30PM for a dinner discussion about the project.
From the artists:
“We are delighted to support the students at Harvey Mudd with the use of our public artwork series ‘Hey, Hetero!’. The work aims to witness heterosexual privilege, and perhaps, thereby, to crack it open. Like whiteness, straight supremacy is both everywhere– and yet invisible. It’s the love that need not speak its name. Hey, Hetero! breaks this silence to render injustice visible.
We are seriously thrilled the work continues to travel the world helping instigate discussion and action.”
-Deborah Kelly and Tina Fiveash
The Day of Silence is the largest student-led action to protest the bullying and harassment of LGBT people and their allies. Participants take a day-long vow of silence and distribute or wear speaking cards with information about raising awareness for change.
Participants will assemble at the end of the day for “Break the Silence” BBQ (Friday 4/15/11 5pm LAC Lawn) with music, food, and fun community-building!
Pick up your own speaking card from the OID office.
The OID office will be designated as a “safe space” for those who are participating in Day of Silence and who would like to talk about their interactions or reflect on their emotions throughout the day.

This smart, fast-paced program examines how efforts to profit from this group are shaping the contemporary Latino identity. The documentary, whose focal point is George Lopez, an advocate for Latinos’ move into the mainstream, offers behind-the-scenes access to Lopez’ life as he shares his struggles to represent Latinos in a manner true to their realities.
