🇺🇸 Which parties and individuals are actually protected by the First Amendment?

Who exactly has the right to Freedom of Speech?

Controversy arose this semester at Santa Monica College over academic freedoms and the right to free speech after the cancellation of the “By The River Rivanna” production.

Additionally, student leaders of the Inter Council Club (ICC) voted against installing the Students Supporting Israel (SSI) club. The institution administration overruled that decision on October 20th, citing the First Amendment.

👨🏽‍🎨 Latine artist Oscar Lopez finds a balance between his love of art and his love of family.

☀️ By day, spends his time working for his dad’s construction company, Wolf Pack Professional Builders. By night, Lopez pulls out his sketchbook where late evenings turn to early mornings.

🎓 An SMC alumn, Lopez transferred to CSU Long Beach, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration in 2018.

🎨 Art will always be a love and form of expression for Lopez. “That was the goal in the beginning, but now I have a full time job that’s nice,” Lopez said. “And I get to see my family still. It’s actually a plus for me. We are very tight.”

Hello SMC Campus Community

A protest is scheduled for 6:30pm Friday, Oct. 20, 2023. For the last few weeks, the campus community has been engaged in dialoge regarding the play production, “By The River Rivanna” scheduled to debut Friday, Oct. 20, 2023.

The play, which was written by G. Bruce Smith, former Public Information Officer for SMC, embraces a romantic version of the terrible and tragic legacy of slavery, sexual abuse, and exploitation in our country, in addition to trafficking in stereotypic tropes.

⚖️ SMC’s Social Justice Lecture Series, recently welcomed Ann Kaneko, an Emmy-Award-winning documentary filmmaker.

🎬 Native Americans, former Japanese American WWII prisoners, and environmentalists form an unexpected alliance to defend their water, their history, and their culture.🫂

⭐️ “In the US today, there are 574 federally recognized tribes. Celebrating Indigenous Peoples' Day is to honor the diverse history, language, and culture of our nation’s first people. We stewarded this land long before Columbus arrived, and we are still here.

⭐️ It is important to understand and acknowledge what has happened to Indigenous people in our country’s history. This holiday is the perfect time to learn how to be an ally and find ways to celebrate our Native relatives.” ~Quote from
