March 23 program features Marilyn Tobocman of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office
What compels a person to fight for the rights of others? Marilyn Tobocman of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office will answer that question during a March program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Standing Up for Others: The Making of an Advocate begins at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 23, at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland. The free program will take place in the Black Box Theatre in the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts.
Tobocman serves as principal assistant attorney general for civil rights with the state office. In that role over the last two decades, she has used the law to promote equality to those pushed to society’s margins.
Her presentation at the College will focus on fair housing and be followed by a discussion on local efforts to address the issue. Russ Mitchell, news anchor at WKYC/Channel 3, will moderate the conversation.
The event is part of Tri-C’s 2017 Celebrating Diversity Speaker Series and the yearlong commemoration celebrating the 50th anniversary of Carl Stokes’ historic election as mayor of Cleveland.
Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Metropolitan Campus is located at 2900 Community College Ave. in Cleveland.
