Thank You!

Hey Everyone!

Scott and I just want to say Thank You for being so awesome and following us through our project this semester. Hopefully someone else will take over for us next semester to keep Palouse on the House going.

Also, we posted a video on our Facebook for everyone to enjoy. We know, we know, it's ridiculous, it's corny, and it isn't professional-level stuff...but it's for class, so don't judge. :) 

Thanks again everyone!

Cleve Jones

SEB presents:
Cleve Jones
Tuesday, Nov. 9th
6:00 p.m.
CUB Auditorium

SEB invites everyone to join them Tuesday night for a discussion on AIDS awareness, gay rights and the movie Milk.

Cleve Jones is founder of NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, which has memorialized over 80,000 Americans killed by AIDS. Jones was befriended by AIDS activist Harvey Milk in the 1970s and worked as a student intern in Milk's office after Milk was elected to the San Fransisco Board of Supervisors. After the assassination of Milk in 1978, Jones went on to co-found the San Fransisco AIDS Foundation in 1983, conceived the idea of the quilt memorial in 1985, and created the first quilt panel in memory of his friend Marvin Feldman in 1987.

Today Cleve Jones is an activist, author and lecturer passionate about raising awareness of AIDS. See him, speak with him, and watch a movie about his friend Harvey Milk on Tuesday night. Portions of the quilt will be on display in the CUB Ballroom Nov. 30-Dec. 2

Visit Cleve Jones' website to find out more.

FAQs :

Is there a place where I can smoke drugs and drink?
This event is “on campus,” drugs and alcohol are not allowed at the event.

Is wearing undies optional?
There is no nudity at this event, but you can get creative, as long as it is appropriate. You are not required to strip down to participate in this event either. Please no thongs also.

Can I donate more clothing than I can wear?
