Sen. Bernie Sanders to headline Marianne Williamson’s
SISTER GIANT: Activating Our Conscience, Restoring Our Democracy

LOS ANGELES, CA – Marianne Williamson will host the third Sister Giant conference on the weekend of March 28-29, 2015 in Los Angeles, Ca. The featured keynote address will be given by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) on Saturday night.  Sen. Sanders is the outspoken senator from Vermont and the longest serving Independent member of Congress in American history. The theme of the event is Activating Our Conscience, Restoring our Democracy. The weekend will also be Livestreamed.

Williamson will moderate talks given by former congressman Dennis Kucinich, civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom, progressive talk show host and author Thom Hartmann, food movement leader Elizabeth Kucinich, host and co-founder of The Young Turks Cenk Uygur, and Lynne Lyman, California state director of the Drug Policy Alliance.

“We’re going to have a meaningful conversation about conscious citizenship and political change,” said Williamson. “From getting the money out of politics to racial justice and mass incarceration, from the corruption of our food supply to how to build a more peaceful world, from spiritual enlightenment to political transformation, we’re going to spend our time examining issues and deepening our understanding.”

Citizens, activists, candidates, prospective candidates or the merely curious are invited to participate in this unique experience. Information about the conference, the speakers and the history of Sister Giant can be found at
