A Special Evening with Helen Gym
“When They Go Low, We Go Local: How Municipal Politics Power Grassroots Justice Movements”
Monday, April 22
Community Room, 1834 16th St., Santa Monica
Helen Gym, a leading progressive voice on Philadelphia City Council, will speak at Crossroads in a presentation hosted by the Crossroads School Equity & Justice Institute and the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Equity & Justice Distinguished Lecture Series. An activist and community organizer, Gym will discuss the power of local politics to transform communities and effect change on social justice issues.
The Younes and Soraya Nazarian Equity & Justice Distinguished Lecture Series was established to help stimulate dialogue among students, educators and community leaders committed to tackling the problems of racism, poverty, war, environmental degradation, educational inequities, religious persecution, genocide and other forms of injustice. The lecture series is an initiative of Younes & Soraya Nazarian Family Foundation, which supports educational causes in a broad spectrum of institutions and through a wide variety of avenues: academic, public policy, community-based, social and artistic programs in the United States and Israel.
