Department: The Greater Lansing Area Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission

Description: The Greater Lansing Area Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission is pleased to announce that our 34th Annual Luncheon will convene on Monday, January 15, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. at the Lansing Center, located at 333 E. Michigan Avenue, Lansing, Michigan. It is our distinct pleasure and sincere honor to welcome Dr. Diane Nash – activist, lecturer and businesswoman. Dr. Nash was one of the founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a hallmark of the American civil rights movement. At 22, she became the unofficial leader of the 1960 sit-ins that desegregated lunch counters in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Nash also worked closely with now U.S. Congressman John Lewis on similar activism throughout the movement. President John F. Kennedy appointed her to a national committee that led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. She worked for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference under Martin Luther King Jr. from 1961 to 1965. She served as an organizer, strategist, field staff person and race-relations staff person and workshop instructor. These are just a small measure of her accomplishments. This year’s theme is: “We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.” The Greater Lansing Area Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission has been a staple of the Lansing community since 1984. Through the years, our luncheon has become the largest and longest-running in the Great Lakes region honoring Dr. King. Funds raised during this event are used to provide service to the Greater Lansing community.

Description: 10th Annual Muslim Mental Health Conference By MSU Department of Psychiatry March 15-17, 2018 Washington, DC United States Institute of Peace THEME: Out of the Shackles: Pursuit of Civil Justice in the Face of Psychological Trauma The number of hate crimes, bullying, and microaggressions American Muslims experience is drawing increasing attention. Scholarly research on the subject began long before the recent political rhetoric and even before 9/11. However, the mechanisms, scale, and impact of the treatment of American Muslims requires more rigorous study and better dissemination. Furthermore, the American Muslim experience is subject to American social and structural realities. The role of race, violence, policing, surveillance, educational policy, mental health care access and reform, immigration policy, and civil liberties in the U.S. all impact the American Muslim experience. Interventions, whether at a clinical, programmatic, or policy level have not been well described. This conference seeks scholars who will offer an analysis as well as intervention for American Muslims’ challenges.
