Doors open at 6:00 PM with a social hour, raffle, and no-host wine bar. Dinner is at 7:00 PM. Popular Marin County folksinger-songwriter-guitarist Jon Fromer will offer a medley of inspiring selections.
Frank will report on her first-hand research into the role of women, youth, and labor behind the emergence of the dynamic social justice movement. Frank is author of several books, including Bananeras: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America, which focuses on Honduras. For a decade she has worked closely in solidarity with the Coalition of Honduran Banana and Agroindustrial Unions and the US Labor Education in the Americas Project. Since the coup, she has written widely about Honduras in the U.S. press, including The Nation, NACLA, NPR.com, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury-News, LATimes.com, the Huffington Post, and Common Dreams.
