For Immediate Release
New Britain, CT - September 14 - Student group, CCSU Youth for Socialist Action, will host Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party Presidential Candidate to speak to the University community and the general public on Thursday, September 22, 1:00 at the CCSU Student Center. She will also appear at Windham Town Hall, Windham, CT, at 6:00 the same evening. Americans in 48 states (including DC) can cast a vote for Dr. Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka.
Stein says that students and youth are the ones that we must support in building a more just future in our country. If all the 43 million persons with student debt voted for the only candidate that wanted to cancel student debt, Dr. Stein could win the election with a voting plurality.
Jill Stein’s Power to the People plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate change catastrophe by implementing a "Green New Deal", which will help build a sustainable, just economy. Her plan will recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world.
