Mission Statement and Upcoming Events
Our mission at Not Alone @ the Beach (NATB) is to provide confidential support services to the CSULB community regarding sexual assault, interpersonal violence, stalking, domestic violence, sexual harassment and exploitation. Our Confidential Campus Advocates offer crisis intervention and advocacy, individual counseling, accompaniment, referrals to current campus/community/legal resources, outreach, training and more. Supported since 2015 by an ongoing grant from the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, NATB is the primary source of cutting-edge gender and power-based violence prevention education, engagement and outreach to CSULB students, faculty, and staff. We work to authentically engage our community and campus partners in our shared efforts at offering a holistic response to sexual violence and a safer, inclusive campus community.
Join our safe space as we explore how to spot dating red flags and signs of intimate partner violence. Topics covered will include signs of an unhealthy relationship, identifying different forms of intimate partner violence, and the romanticization of toxic relationships in the media. Giveaway of t-shirts and notebooks will also be available for attendees. This workshop is a collaboration between Beach Buddy and Not Alone at the Beach in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month.
When: October 12th from 2 – 3 pm
Behind the Screens: Discriminatory Algorithms
𝑨𝒍𝒈𝒐𝒓𝒊𝒕𝒉𝒎𝒔 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆. They determine your Google search results, your Instagram feed, and your Netflix suggestions. These actions are convenient and, for the most part, harmless. But what happens when algorithms shape your future by creating your credit score, deciding on your loan applications, and assessing your job or rental eligibility?
Algorithms are making significant decisions in our lives and society. They are increasingly impacting all our lives, but some of us, particularly women, people of color, and people experiencing poverty, are made more vulnerable by algorithms.
Behind the Screens: Discriminatory Algorithms identifies this pattern of technology discrimination and poses solutions to address it.
