The League of Women Voters will have their community Lunch with a Leader at 11:45 a.m., Dec. 15 at the Mesa Public Library.
Their leader will be Suki Halevi who is the new face of the Anti-Defamation League(ADL) for New Mexico. The ADL works to combat all hate crimes, bullying and cyberbullying, voter rights, LGBT rights, etc.
Suki completed her BA at Vassar College, her Masters at Tufts, and her law degree at Duke. A serious, dedicated woman of principle, she comes to Albuquerque most recently after seven years on the island of Maui. She stands on the traditions she learned growing up in Beth El Synagogue in West Hartford, Connecticut.
She was inspired by Rabbi Stanley Kessler, a prominent civil rights leader who demonstrated with the Freedom Riders and marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and with Kessler’s teacher, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel.
She will be discussing the anti-defamation league in general but will address voters rights specifically.
You do not have to order a lunch to attend. If you do decide to order, Armbruster needs your order by Friday, Dec. 11.
