You've seen the gut wrenching commercials starring young children and loaded guns, aimed at publicizing the problem with keeping weapons in the home. Join the University Activities Board and Alliance for Justice in reviewing a new documentary on gun violence tonight at 6 p.m. A question and answer period with various local officials will follow the film "Deadly Business." Free passes for the MUSE building screening are available at the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership. For more information, call Diana Ziegler at 621-0768.
Last year it was the Artist formerly known as Prince, but this year it's "The Week Formerly Known As Feminist Invasion." Organized by the feminist group CR Collective, the week is a culmination of on- and off-campus workshops and classes on relationship violence awareness. The week kicks off with a rape forum today at noon sponsored by the Women's Resource Center on the temporary stage on the UA Mall and will be followed by today's 1:15 p.m. workshop on the dynamics of a healthy versus non-healthy relationship and personal boundary violation in connection with relationship violence. The workshop is free of charge and will be held in Harvill, Room 107. For more information, call Matt Sanders at 626-2051.
Stop! Do not pull that credit card out of its protective sleeve until you have stopped by the Students in Free Enterprise "Wise Use of Credit" booth on the UA Mall. Today between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., SIFE students will pass out information on safe credit card use and debt calculation. Don't get scammed by vendors around campus with high interest rates and secured payment plans. Learn your rights today. For more information, call Micah at 628-4225.
Tucson wasn't always a college town, with bars and athletic shops lining the streets. Years ago, wagons ruled Speedway and downtown consisted of barber shops and hardware stores. Learn more about what made Tucson the place it is today at the grand opening of The Arizona Historical Society Museum Downtown, 140 N. Stone Ave. The museum opens with the "Heart of Tucson" exhibit which chronicles the colorful past of Tucson. Admission is free today between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Free parking is also available at the Wells Fargo parking garage behind the museum. For more information, call the Arizona Historical Society at 628-5774.
