An Evening with Shaun King, Legacy Month Keynote Speaker
Start Date: 10/24/2018Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 10/24/2018End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Today, there are crucial conversations rippling across North America—conversations happening on social media, on campuses, in the streets and around dinner tables. In greater numbers, people are talking about real empowerment and liberation for historically disadvantaged groups. When it comes to the Black Lives Matter movement, they’re talking specifically about human dignity for African Americans. And for this movement, journalist, humanitarian, and activist Shaun King, a columnist for The Intercept and the Writer-In-Residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project, is amongst the most compelling voices: a humane and passionate advocate for justice and families, and an extremely visible fundraiser for victims of brutality and discrimination.

Join the Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center for our annual Legacy Month Keynote Speaker featuring American writer and civil rights activist, Shaun King with an interactive conversation with San Jose community leaders:

   -Ro Khanna, US Representative
    California District 17
   -Maribel Martinez, Director of LGBTQ
    Affairs Santa Clara County

   -Raj Jayadev, De Bug Silicon Valley

   -Alice Huffman, NAACP

Legacy month is presented by the A.S.
César E. Chávez Community Action Center.
