Riverside City College will be part of 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s speaking tour across California on March 15 from 1-3pm in front of the Martin Luther King buildings steps.
Stein will be sharing her thoughts on the current political movement, progressive grassroots organizing and the importance of local action. The Green Party promotes a green New Deal jobs program to revive the economy and turn the tide on climate change; cancellation of student debt and free public higher education; and a people’s alternative to the two dominant parties (Republican & Democrat).
Embarking on an 8 day speaking tour across California from March 8-15 Stein plans to appear at events from Arcata to San Diego, including participation with the Green Party of California’s spring convention in Bakersfield on March 11 and 12.
Besides being the Green Party presidential candidate for the 2012 and 2016 elections Stein is also well known for two books on toxic threats to children’s health and environmental threats on aging.
She will be able to meet with the news media by appointment.
