Dolores Huerta Neves Evans Social Justice Lecture Series

Social justice is at the heart of a $250,000 endowment made to Sonoma State University recently by a couple who hopes the gift will spur others to donate "to nudge the University in the direction they would like to see it go." SSU professor emerita Andrea Neves and her husband Bart Evans are longtime supporters of programs in education, including the building of classrooms in Africa. This endowment fund supports the H. Andrea Neves and Barton Evans Social Justice Lecture Series at Sonoma State University, a joint venture of the School of Social Sciences and the School of Education.

The 2014 lecture features Dolores Huerta on the evening of March 27, 2014. Read more and find out how to get tickets.
