The speakers were marvelous! I appreciated that they interacted with the audience and were eager to learn from the audience's questions. Please invite more speakers like these to DePaul in the future. Thank you!
Rebecca Solnit spoke clearly about Climate Chaos and how we can address it. I particularly enjoyed the asides and the quote from Bill McKibbon: Stop being an individual! (In working to protect the environment)
It was fantastic!! It's difficult to get the conversation going because most people don't know anyone in nursing facility for young teenagers. Once you learn the in's and outs, the step by step process, of how a child goes from an impoverished family life, to being recruited by an agent, looking to make from $300 to $500 sign-up bonus, to the horrible, prison like living conditions, the lack of nurturing, educating, and empowering these kids, to give them a chance to lead a productive, fulfilling life. That's all they're asking for. It's what we all want. I could go on and on. I am beyond words proud of my great friend, Susan R. Nussbaum, for writing such an amazing piece! Someone had to lead the way!
the sales table did not tell me that the tickets will be later used for a raffle, I could barley understand what the event coordinator was saying while she was talking into the microphone. However, the models were all great, professional, and did a great job. Some obviously more confident than others. The clothes were great, the cause was great, and the refreshments were good. Also, started an hour late, which dragged.
