We have a number of events this November. Mark your calendars and make sure to RSVP!
Q&A with Former Representative Peter Stark
Congressman Pete Stark represented California’s East Bay for forty years. A national leader on healthcare and progressive causes, Stark crafted the Affordable Care Act and also authored COBRA, EMTALA, and the Stark Laws, all landmark medical reforms.
In 2008 he became the first Congressman to openly identify as a non-theist, and received the Humanist of the Year award from theAmerican Humanist Association.
Rep Stark will be discussing progressive politics, the relationship between religion and government, and how young people can engage in a changing political landscape.
Come join us: Thursday November 7th at 7pm in Harkness Hall 100 Wall Street.
And make sure to RSVP on Facebook! This event is open to the public.
