Welcome Week FEM FEST!

The Che Cafe is throwing a ☀FREE☀ 2 day event! 

This is about creating safe(r), welcoming and comfortable spaces for everyone that support, showcase & celebrate queer, trans* folx, womyn, grrrls, genderqueer & gender non-conforming artists, activists & allies!

We would like to bring like-minded individuals together, to create lasting connections within our community, to provide an alternative to the heteronormative/cisnormative campus culture, to introduce students to radical politics and to our space, to take space within our community and to encourage a more intersectional feminist identity within our community.

Join us for 2 full days of workshops, speakers, discussions, skillshares, performance & visual art, poetry, vegan food, music +more!


Visit event page here!

The Che Café Collective still needs your help!

**UPDATE - 9/30**

We've started a new petition to "THE UCSD ADMINISTRATION AND THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA" to drop the eviction proceedings and return to the negotiating table. Each online signature will be sent to the UC Board of Regents, the UCSD Chancellor, the UC President, all of the UCSD Vice Chancellors, the University Centers Director, the Graduate Students Council, the Associated Students Council, and the University Centers Advisory Board. We want ALL of them to get thousands of emails to stop the eviction!

The Che is alive but fighting an eviction lawsuit that was recently filed by UCSD. The collective and its supporters are challenging the lawsuit and the underlying lease termination as unfair and improper.

In case you aren't caught up to speed, click here to read our latest press release.

Here are a few ways you can show your support and contribute to saving the space:

  • Make a donation or plan a fundraiser. Even a small donation helps and is greatly appreciated!
  •  Sign the online petition (over 11,700 signatures so far):
  • Encourage UCSD students, faculty, and alumni to get involved, and to utilize the Che Café as a show venue, meeting place, community center, and safe space.
  • Write a letter/email to UCSD administration. A list of addresses and emails are available at the links below and online.
  • Come to a meeting, show or event at the Che, volunteer at the che, or join the Che Café Support Network!

UPDATE: The Che is still fighting to stay! It is currently in the process of fighting an eviction by UCSD and the law firm it hired to kick us out! The Che remains strong and was granted a preliminary injunction for October 31st (an event page will be created when more information is available and we will need as many supporters to attend). If you would like to help us in the meantime, please help us fundraise by donating to our gofundme ( or attend one of our many fundraising events at Che! We are running low on funds and these are vital to keeping us alive. LONG LIVE THE CHE CAFE AND SHAME ON UCSD!"
