“I chose Curry because I really enjoyed the campus feel, I felt safe there. I also looked at the students and I saw me. I felt like I could relate to them. I felt comfortable and that was really important-just fitting in.”

Activist/Author Tom Hayden to Speak at Curry
October 11, 2012
Curry College will welcome activist, author and former politician Tom Hayden to campus for a speaking engagement on October 11, 2012 in the Keith Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
Among the topics Mr. Hayden will be speaking about are the economic, environmental, and human costs of war; the proportion of our taxes that go to the military; the threat to our democracy from the military-industrial complex - how the defense industry and other forces quash democracy through use of lobbyists, legislators, and media; and, how we can move toward an economy and society that benefits human welfare.
Presented by Milton for Peace, this free event is co-sponsored by The American Friends Service Committee, Curry Committee for Social and Environmental Justice, Dorchester People for Peace, Mass Peace Action, The Milton Times, Sustainable Milton, and United for Justice with Peace. This lecture is free to Curry College students. A $5 donation will be requested from all other attendees, which will go to Milton for Peace. Mr. Hayden will also be signing his various publications.
Tom Hayden is a leading voice for ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan, for erasing sweatshops, saving the environment and reforming politics through a more participatory democracy.
