Her stop in Santa Rosa this week is part of a California swing toward the conservative bastions of the south with the same intent: to mobilize meaningful national policy action as soon as possible.

Dr. Ring will share her message at the Peace and Justice Center, 467 Sebastopol Avenue in Santa Rosa, on Friday night, Dec. 7th at 7 pm.
