Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson will meet with faculty, staff, students and the community as part of the College of Charleston’s “Bully Pulpit Series” on Oct. 29, 2019.

The event will take place in Alumni Hall located at 66 George St. from 4:30‐5:30 p.m. Alumni Hall is on the second floor of Randolph Hall on the Cistern Yard. This event is free to attend and open to the public. RSVP through Williamson’s campaign website. RSVP is for headcount only. This is not a ticketed event.

Williamson is the author of 13 books, seven of which were on the New York Times bestseller list. She is the founder of the California-based nonprofit Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels to support the seriously ill who are homebound. Her other nonprofit work includes: co-founding The Peace Alliance, a group that seeks the formation of a U.S. Department of Peace; serving on the board of Results Educational Fund (RESULTS), a charity focused on finding long-term solutions to poverty; and developing four Sister Giant Conferences, which encourage women to run for office. In 2014, Williamson ran as an independent for California’s 33rd congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. She finished fourth out of 18 candidates in the primary.

The mission of the Bully Pulpit Series is to encourage and facilitate political participation throughout the College of Charleston community by providing a platform for dialogue with our nation’s leaders. At its core, the series engages today’s youth by meeting students where they are – in the classroom, outside their residence halls and through their social networks – to create curious, informed and engaged individuals who are ready and able to engender political and social change.
