George Bakan – Editor of Seattle Gay News and a veteran organizer against the far right, and co-founder of United Front against Fascism
Brendan Delaney – Tech worker, anti-fascist activist and founding member of the recently formed coalition Community and Labor Against Fascism
Su Docekal – Socialist feminist leader of many battles, including defending abortion clinics and fighting racist and anti-gay ballot initiatives.
Admittance is a sliding-scale door donation of $2-5, or free when you buy a one-year subscription to the Freedom Socialist newspaper (now half-price through June 30th!). A summer salad dinner will be provided at 6PM for an $8-12 donation.
