Speaker Lisa Shannon

Lisa Shannon will be speaking on “A Thousand Sisters: You Can Change the World” at 7 p.m. in the McCarthy Arts Center. Lisa Shannon, founder of Run for Congo Women, is the first national grassroots activist in the U.S. working to raise awareness of the crisis in the Congo. Since her lone 30-mile run in 2005, thousands have joined Run for Congo Women, now an international movement that has sponsored some 1,400 war-affected Congo women through Women for Women International.
