Sandra Fluke To Speak As Part Of SPA’s Distinguished Speakers Series

As part of its Distinguished Speakers Series, the Student Programing Association (SPA) announced equal rights activist Sandra Fluke will speak in Alumni Hall on Wednesday, December 2 at 8 p.m.

A self described social justice attorney according to her twitter, Fluke specializes in discussions based on the equal rights for several causes, and ultimately formed her entire career around vocalizing her devotion to many popular social rights groups. Some of those groups include: gender quality, education affordability, LGBTQ rights, and immigration reform.

As well as social justice, Fluke advocates her passion for equal rights though her representation of victims of human trafficking and domestic violence. She also gained popularity on a nation-wide scale after taking a stance against Rush Limbaugh in the fight for comprehensive insurance for birth control.

Fluke is the current California State Director for a non-profit advocacy organization, a past candidate for the November 2014 election for State Senate, and a member of the Board of Emerge California. She is known for her powerful address at the Democratic National Convention, and manages many campaigns in hopes to bring to light widespread issues that, in her eyes, aren’t being addressed properly.
