Lecture on Independent Politics Scheduled at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Sept. 26, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — Omar H. Ali, adjunct faculty member of the history department at Fordham University and a doctoral fellow at Columbia University, will make a stop at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire during his national lecture tour to speak about independent politics from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in the Presidents Room of Davies Center.
Ali’s speech, “For the American People, Independent of the Special Interests,” is an informational and educational lecture on grassroots third-party politics and how the independence movement is working to build alliances from the ground up. A question-and-answer session will follow.
Ali is also director of research for the Committee for a Unified Independent Party, a national think-tank and strategy center for independent politics and election reform, and a contributing author to “History in Dispute: American Social and Political Movements, 1945-2000” (2000).
The event, cosponsored by the UW-Eau Claire College Independents and the Campus Greens, is free and open to the public.
