Hey, Oles! St. Olaf’s Political Awareness Committee is excited to host Reverend Al Sharpton, longtime civil rights activist, political adviser, and commentator. Sharpton is one of the most prominent voices in the civil rights conversation—he is who the country looks to for comment when civil rights issues arise. Through his radio show, TV show, and written work, issues he advocates for range from but are not limited to gun violence intervention, equal treatment of people of all races and sexual orientations, and criminal justice reform.
The event will take place in Skoglund gym, starting at 8 pm. Doors will open at 7:45, so come early because it is expected that this will be an event with high attendance. We hope to see you there.
