_____________

“Our Monologues” is a production featuring the real stories of students at UC Berkeley. We are a student org sponsored by the Gender Equity Resource Center.

The show welcomes all students to participate so long as they are committed to fostering a safe and inclusive space– with a prioritization of BIPOC femme, nonbinary, woman,* transgender, differently-abled, and queer students and allies as well as their relationships to gender, race, sexuality, and other intersections of their identity. Our mission is to end gender-based violence and promote gender equity on our campus and in our world. All proceeds of the show go to organizations around the Bay Area that align with our values. 

*We welcome all who experience life through the lens of woman in body, spirit, identity- past, present, future, and fluid.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 2/29 and 3/1 shows will be moved to Dwinelle 155 on unceded Huichin Ohlone land.

Branching away from "The Vagina Monologues," our community and our production place students with historically marginalized identities at the center, is the largest educational platform for gender-based violence on campus, and manifests a community of healing, liberation, resistance, education, decolonial work, and more. This year's theme is "Phases of Healing: Many Moons" and runs for two more performances on Sat 2/29 and Sun 3/1/2020.

Our proceeds go toward: The Shuumi Land Tax, The Transgender Law Center, Cal's Black Student Union, and Cal's Gender Equity Resource Center.

CW: Content in the show includes, but is not limited to: sexual, domestic, emotional violence; transphobia; suicide; racial violence; and substance use.

On-site resources include an on-site counselor, a decompression corner with activities, Cal's De-Stress with Dogs, 6 grounding exercises throughout the show, and resources within the program.
