In the past, NCDC has brought speakers such as Anna Burger, Secretary-Treasurer of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and Chair of the Change to Win labor federation, renowned environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and activist Cleve Jones.
The event takes place on Northwestern’s Evanston’s campus in Fisk Hall 311 at 7:00 p.m.
