CALENDAR OF EVENTS
ANNUAL DINNER CELEBRATION
September 21, 5 PM
Celebrating 30 years of social justice activism, The Task Force on the Americas will hold its Annual Dinner on Sunday, September 21 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marin, 240 Channing Way, San Rafael, California.
Award-winning singer/songwriter Reed Fromer will perform to carry on the long-standing tradition of the Fromer Family's participation in our annual fundraiser.
This year's featured speaker is Miguel Tinker Salas, Professor of Latin American History at Pomona College in Claremont, California. He is one of the nation's foremost authorities on political and social issues confronting Latin America. His book The Enduring Legacy: Oil, Culture, and Society in Venezuela studies the cultural and social legacy of multinational oil companies in Venezuela. His interest in how oil suffused the consciousness of Venezuela is personal: he was born and raised in one of its oil camps.
Doors open at 5 PM with a social hour, no-host bar, silent auction and boutique. Dinner is at 6 PM. A $50-100 donation is requested. Reservations required by September 14. The venue is wheelchair accessible. For information call 415/924-3227.
