IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND RECENT EVENTS  

Read and Talk with Us!

We're partnering with ATVP in April to sponsor a feminine hygiene drive for community members in need and to co-host a discussion of the book Not that Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture by Roxane Gay.  The book is described as a collection of “original and previously published pieces that address what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are ‘routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied for speaking out.” Please note the content of this book may be triggering to victims of sexual assault.

The book discussion is scheduled for April 17th, 6-7pm at 3 Forks Bike & Brew, 588 SE Bishop Blvd, Suite G, Pullman, WA.

ATVP has a limited supply of free books to share with the community.  To get a copy of the book, you can stop by ATVP’s office in Gladish Community & Cultural Center, 115 NW State St., Room 305, Pullman, WA during business hours (8:30am-5pm). Best to call in advance (509-332-4357) to ensure copies are still available.

Suggested items you can bring for donation that night include:
