Nancy Duff Campbell, Co-President, National Women’s Law Center to Speak September 23 at Rackham Amphitheatre
Nancy Duff Campbell, Co-President of the National Women’s Law Center in Washington D.C, is the 2014 Twink Frey Visiting Social Activist.
Campbell will be in residence at CEW for the month of September. She will be working on a National Women’s Agenda during that time and on September 23 at 4:00 pm in the Rackham Amphitheatre, will discuss her work in a lecture presentation titled: When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: Why We Need a Women’s Economic Agenda. The lecture is free and open to the public. There will be a question and answer session after the lecture followed by a reception.
Each year, the VSA program brings to CEW a social justice activist whose work affects women and recognizes gender equity issues. One goal of the program is to build the capacity and effectiveness of social activists. This is accomplished by giving the VSA time, space and support to work on a project that would not be possible under the activist’s usual working circumstances.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Education of Women, Social Work Learning Community on Poverty and Inequality, Rackham Office of Graduate Student Success, LS&A Women’s Studies, Law School and Michigan Journal of Gender & Law, Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning, and the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.
