He stole some of her thunder, but Rep. Kyrsten Sinema is willing to share the spotlight with Sen. Al Franken Sunday night as they keynote and kick off the Commonweal Institute’s 2009 Progressive Roundtable at 7 p.m. in the Moorish Room at Greysolon Plaza, 321 E. Superior St. It’s free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is strongly encouraged. Call (218) 726-5430.
You can catch Sinema in a solo act signing her just-released book at Northern Lights in Canal Park from 2-3 p.m. Sunday.
The Arizona state legislator has earned the 2007 Planned Parenthood Advocates Choice Award, environmental awards, and recently served as the Chair of Arizona Together, a campaign to defeat a same-sex marriage ban on the ballot. Kyrsten is a dedicated advocate for disadvantaged and oppressed populations, environmental justice and social justice.
Her book, “Unite and Conquer: How to Build Coalitions that Win and Last,” is described by the publisher: “Divide-and-conquer tactics stolen from conservatives do not work, especially in the long term, to further progressive causes. There is no logic or power in trying to use bad strategies to get to a good place. In Unite and Conquer, legislator Krysten Sinema shows how the future of the progressive movement is to be found in unity, alignment and partnership. Sinema’s no-nonsense, concrete approach shows readers that we are all really more alike than different, and that we can get work together successfully for change when we let go of specific outcomes and focus on our shared values.”
