Seattle socialist Evergreen’s commencement speaker

April 14th, 2015 by Ken

Kshama Sawant,  a member of the Seattle City Council, has been selected as the commencement speaker for The Evergreen State College graduation ceremonies this spring.

She was selected by the students at the college.

According to her biography Sawant  “is an activist, organizer and socialist, and is a member of Socialist Alternative, in solidarity with the Committee for Worker’s International, which organizes for working-class interests on every continent. ”

According to her web page she accepts only workers wages and donates the rest of her six-figure Seattle City Council salary to building social justice movements.

(Editors note:   Sounds like an interesting speaker.   I’d like to hear what she has to say.)
