Rashad Robinson

Rinku Sen

By Cheryl Leanza
I’m so excited — next week, Tuesday October 24, 2017, is our 35th Annual Parker Lecture, and I can’t wait to see everyone and receive my annual dose of inspiration for the work ahead. I hope all of you will join us either in person at First Congregational UCC in Washington DC (tickets only $25 this year!) or live online via Facebook.
Ravi Kapur has used his business acumen, and sheer drive and commitment to create a free, over-the-air network of programming focused on news about and for Asian Americans and South Asians. ... Rashad Robinson is a household name in many circles. His active schedule, media appearances, and visionary leadership of Color Of Change is without equal. I’m going to be a little star struck when he arrives next Tuesday morning. ... Finally, I’ve been looking forward to Rinku Sen’s lecture ever since she graciously accepted the invitation. She has just spent 10 years on the front lines of racial justice work in this country. ... This is the perfect time to hear her thoughts and strategies about what has worked, what our society can do better, and the opportunities the next 10 years will bring.
I can’t wait to see everyone next week, from the fantastic corporate sponsors who make it possible, to my close allies in the work of media justice, to the UCC and faith community who join us every year. I’ts not too late to make plans to come!
Read the rest on Medium, and make your plans to join us now.
