Enjoy a light breakfast and conversation with Nick Licata and reflect on various strategies for promoting effective social change. The first ten registrants who attend this event will receive a copy of Licata’s book, "Becoming a Citizen Activist, Stories, Strategies and Advice for Changing Our World." Mr. Licata is from a working class family and was the first of his relatives to attend college. He led the local chapter of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at Bowling Green State University and subsequently was elected student body president. He became a Seattle city council member despite being significantly outspent and the majority of the council, the mayor, and both daily newspapers supporting his opponent. Elected to five terms, in 2012 he was named by the Nation as Progressive Municipal Official of the Year and twice named Best Local Politician by the Seattle Weekly. While in office he sponsored and had adopted as legislation paid sick leave and a minimum $15 an hour wage for all employees in the city, a city wide registration and inspection program for all rental units, required registration for all those lobbying city council, and created funding for cultural facilities throughout the city and initiated the city’s Civic Poet program.

This event is hosted by the Center for Social Justice and Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor. It is an event of the Let Freedom Ring! Initiative of the Office of the President, honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Questions about this event can be directed to Dr. Andria Wisler, Center for Social Justice Executive Director, at akw28@georgetown.edu.
