We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest


Jarvis Tyner ran for the US presidency twice on a ticket with presidential candidate Gus Hall in the 1970s.

He worked closely with Angela Davis and he is a founding member of the Black Radical Congress.

He is one of the most dynamic speakers on the topic of equality today.

Find out why full voter mobilization and participation in November's elections are crucial in the struggle against racism, gender discrimination, and homophobia!

Join us Thursday, October 25 at 7 pm in Mitchell Hall Auditorium to hear Jarvis Tyner.
