Sandra Fluke to Speak at Cornell
ITHACA — Sandra Fluke, a 2003 Cornell University graduate who recently spoke at the Democratic National Convention, returns to her alma mater next week.
Fluke, a Georgetown Law School student who made headlines after being verbally attacked by conservative radio talk show personality Rush Limbaugh, will address students on “Civic Responsibility: From Cornell to the DNC and Beyond.”
Her free lecture takes place on Monday, Oct. 15 at 7pm at Statler Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30pm and free tickets will be issued at the door until all seats are taken.
Fluke earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell with a primary focus on policy analysis and management and feminist, gender and sexuality studies. Following Cornell, she worked with the New York City nonprofit Sanctuary for Families, the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and other city and state coalitions advocating for improving domestic violence policies.
The talk is sponsored by Cornell’s College of Human Ecology, Engaged Cornell and the Cornell Democrats.October 10, 2012 By Ed Sutherland
