On Sunday, October 4, 2015, we are holding our Eighth CCDS/Kendra Alexander Foundation Banquet. It will be held from 2–5 pm at the Redwood Gardens Community Room, 2951 Derby Street, Berkeley, CA.
We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker will be Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, well known us in Northern California as a teacher, activist in indigenous peoples’ struggles, and author of numerous books, most recently An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States. She will be speaking on “The United States as a Settler-Colonial State.”
The program will open with a Native American ceremony honoring the land and ancestors, and this year CCDS will honor three local/national/international organizations: Idle No More SF Bay, LeftRoots and US Labor Against The War. Dinner will be catered again by Jordon Alexander.
