University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on Thursday, November 10th at 12:00 PM for a discussion called “Stopping the Violence: The Alive & Free Violence Prevention Prescription.” The talk will feature Dr. Joseph E. Marshall, Jr., the founder and Executive Director of the Alive & Free Consortium.

 

Alive & Free is an organization headquartered in San Francisco and dedicated to eliminating violence worldwide. It was founded in 1987 and has transformed the lives of thousands of young people and produced 262 college graduates, all supported by the organization’s scholarship fund. Another 50 members are currently enrolled in college, and more than 70 have gone on to earn graduate degrees. Dr. Marshall is a winner of the MacArthur Genius Award, the California Prize for Service and the Common Good and is the recipient of many other awards and recognitions.

 

You can register for the talk here and learn more about Dr. Marshall’s work by visiting www.stayaliveandfree.org. This lecture is free to attend but donations to Alive & Free are strongly encouraged.

 

This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
