[Boulder, Colorado] – Join the Cornel West campaign as we galvanize supporters for a transformative evening of dialogue and inspiration at the 'Rally for Truth, Justice, and Love', hosted at Naropa University on April 12, 2024, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM MT.

In a time of great division, Dr. Cornel West, Independent candidate for President, extends an open invitation to students, alumni, local community members, and engaged citizens nationwide to unite for an honest conversation about the future of our nation. Emphasizing the pressing need for a radical shift towards policies that reflect the collective will of the people, Dr. West will articulate his revolutionary vision for a government deeply rooted in empathy and fairness.

"Justice is what love looks like in public," Dr. West has said, and his campaign is a testament to these words. The rally will serve as a potent reminder that the values of truth, justice, and love are not merely abstract concepts but actionable principles that must underpin our policies and political discourse.

As the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at Union Theological Seminary and Professor Emeritus at Princeton University, Dr. West's academic brilliance is matched only by his profound civic commitment. His policy platform emerges from a rich intellectual, artistic, and spiritual tradition, driven by a relentless pursuit of justice and a deep commitment to democratic engagement.

This event promises to be more than a political rally; it is an invitation to partake in a movement that seeks to elevate our national consciousness and reaffirm our commitment to each other as human beings. It will feature discussions, student addresses, and a keynote speech from Dr. West himself.

Attendees are encouraged to prioritize sustainable transportation options due to limited parking at the Nalanda campus. Please consider carpooling, biking, or using the RTD bus service, which conveniently stops at Arapahoe Ave and 63rd street, directly in front of the campus.

About Cornel West For President 2024

Dr. West, affectionately known to many as Brother West, is the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at Union Theological Seminary. 

Dr. West is the former University Professor at Harvard University, Professor Emeritus at Princeton University and the first Black person to receive a Ph.D. In Philosophy from Princeton University. He has written 20 books and he is best known for his classics, Race Matters and Democracy Matters, and for his memoir, Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud. He will deliver the historic Gifford lectures at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in Spring 2024.

Dr. West enters the 2024 Presidential contest at a time in which he describes a national crisis of moral bankruptcy and spiritual obscenity driven by a derelict duopoly of both major parties that equally places profits over people and the planet. West asserts that running as an Independent candidate affords him the opportunity and duty to deliver policy prescriptions incorporated by and for the people, instead of political parties beholden to corporations and special interest groups who feel no solidarity with poor and working-class people of all races, gender identities, and age groups. 

The Cornel West Campaign to empower poor and working people everywhere stands at a pivotal moment in history, committed to being a true campaign for people around the globe. Our aim is and will always be to unite in solidarity with movements of truth and justice, who seek a choice beyond empire, white supremacy, capitalism, patriarchy, and the confines of the corporate-dominated two-party system.
