RSVP

We are excited to welcome Elaine Elinson, author of Wherever There’s a Fight - How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers, and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California. Elaine will continue to push our conversation about rights, justice and equity by exploring the experiences of other marginalized groups. Her talk will bring the civil rights struggles closer to home as she focuses on California history and experiences. Elaine will share examples of advocates and upstanders who are beacons of hope and inspiration for our work.
