‘I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.’
-Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg quoting Sarah Grimké

This 2018 biographical documentary is about the diminutive Supreme Court Justice from Brooklyn who has in the last decade become a hero and icon for the feminist and LGBT community. Including many of her own words and interviews, testimony before congress and interviews with her friends, family and co-workers, this film fills in the story of her rise through the system and the truly extraordinary changes to our society that she helped bring about. Indeed, the thing that struck me the most about her career, it seems to me the most important contributions she made early on were the cases she won. In the later part, after being appointed to the Supreme Court, her dissents have had the most impact. Come and see what you think. Also learn what Ruth the person is like, as opposed to Ruth the Judge.

As always, popcorn will be provided, feel free to bring drinks and snacks to enjoy and maybe share. The movie will be shown in the Conference Room on the 3rd floor of the Foundry.

Movie Night, Showing: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

Join us Saturday, December 1st at 8 PM on the 3rd floor of The Foundry Community (211 N 14th).

[first lines of the film]
Fred Rogers: [at his piano] “Come on over a minute. I just had some ideas that I’ve been thinking about for quite a while about modulation. It seems to me that there are different themes in life, and one of my main jobs, it seems to me, is to help, through the mass media for children, to help children through some of the difficult modulations of life.”

Thus begins a marvelous biographical documentary about a most amazing individual. Fred Rogers was an anomaly even within the world of children’s television. Through his gentle message of love, tolerance and acceptance, he touched countless children and several generations with a message that can perhaps be boiled down to “I like you, just the way you are.” He spent hours crafting every show, every song, every line to make it the best possible. He enchanted children and adults alike, because there was nothing phony about Mr. Rogers. What you saw, was what you got. His television personality was who he was. Popcorn will be provided, feel free to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy and maybe share.

A little kindness makes a world of difference

Lincoln Bi Night

No automatic alt text available.

Please note the location. We’re meeting in the Foundry’s 3rd floor conference room on Monday, November 19th at 6:30 pm.

Join us for another night of bi/pan-oriented socializing, discussion, planning, and board games!

Because of the unwanted sexual objectification and advances bi people (especially femme presenting/identifying folks) are often on the receiving end of, these events are designed to be platonic. Unwelcome sexual advances will result in you being asked to leave the group. If someone does something to make you uncomfortable please reach out to Kaitlin or Wesley. Thanks, and we hope to see you all soon!
