FREEDOM SOCIALIST PARTY - 'CLARA FRASER: THE ORIGINAL SOCIALIST FEMINIST'
The often controversial Clara Fraser advocated women's liberation, racial justice, workers' rights, and Queer equality long before 'multi-issue' politics was a common phrase.

On Saturday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m., at New Freeway Hall (5018 Rainier Ave. S.), event speakers Andrea Bauer and Dennis Sanders will provide two different perspectives on Clara Fraser. Bauer, an environmentalist and Queer rights activist, knew Fraser well and was her student in Marxist economics. Sanders, an anti-capitalist analyst and writer on international affairs, has been influenced by Fraser's ideas as expressed in works like Revolution, She Wrote. Both carry forward Fraser's vision of creating a humane culture in a world of peace and shared wealth.

The festivities will kick off with 'Mike's Louisiana Gumbo feast' at 6 p.m. Suggested donation $3 for door and $10 for dinner (optional), with work exchanges available for strikers, students or the unemployed. For childcare or more information, call 206-722-2453.
