Don't miss this Amazing Event! Tuesday, Nov. 7 Lory Student Center 312 - 5 p.m. How can we organize for economic justice and homeless rights? 50 years ago, Martin Luther King Junior and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference planned to create a "Radical redistribution of economic and political power". Reflecting on that, Scholars and rights activists Willie Baptist from the Kairos Center in New York, Paul Boden, from the Western Regional Advocacy Center in San Francisco, and Lynn Thompson, from the Fort Collins Homeless Coalition, discuss the state of poverty rights and homelessness issues at the local and national level. They will focus on current campaigns and how you can get involved in your community. Information: 970.419.8944
