Sonoma’s Praxis Peace Institute continues to present zoom events with critical thinkers. On June 25: progressive voice Dennis Kucinich.
June 25, 1 p.m.
A Progressive Agenda, Overcoming the Power Structures
Dennis Kucinich served as a U.S. Congressman from Ohio’s 10th district for 14 years and was a Presidential candidate in 2004 and 2008. Earlier, he was elected to the Cleveland City Council and later served as Mayor of Cleveland, where he managed to save the public utilities from being sold off to a private corporation. It was a major fight where even his life was threatened on several occasions. His new book, The Division of Light and Power, published on June 8, 2021, will be the topic of our discussion. We will also discuss his recent decision to run for Mayor of Cleveland again, returning full circle to the local level of power. Dennis is a long-time friend of Praxis Peace Institute as we hosted him in 2002 at our 7-day conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia (he is half Irish and half Croatian). He also spoke to a sold-out audience at the Marin Civic Center in March 2003 that was produced by Praxis Peace Institute.
