l-simon-200pxOften the solution to a problem begins with one person who is willing to act. Throughout her life, Lateefah Simon has been serving as that social activist. Described as a “peaceful warrior,” she shows by example what it means to be a civil rights advocate, humbly fighting for criminal justice reform, immigrant rights and low-wage workers’ rights, among others.

Montgomery County Community College, through its Richard K. Bennett Distinguished Lectureship for Peace and Social Justice, is excited to host Lateefah Simon on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, at 12:30 p.m. when she will be sharing her experiences in her discussion, “Through the Fire.”

The program will be held in the College’s Science Center Theater, Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, and is free and open to the community. The lecture will be simulcast to South Hall Community Room, West Campus, 101 College Drive, Pottstown.
