Sonoma State University welcomes activist and author Laurence Shoup in the Student Center Ballroom on Monday, April 11 at 7 p.m. to discuss his new book, "Wall Street's Think Tank: The Council on Foreign Relations and the Empire of Neoliberal Geopolitics, 1979-2014."

Shoup's 2015 book tackles issues surrounding the United States' Council on Foreign Relations and how the Council responded to international events from the 1970s until present day. Shoup considers himself a people's movement activist and began his career in social activism five decades ago during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The event is sponsored by Sonoma State's Project Censored and the Media Freedom Foundation and is free to students, though a donation is suggested. Parking on campus is $5-$8.
