Carmen Berkeley, director of civil, human and women’s rights for the AFL-CIO, will be the keynote speaker for Women’s History Month activates this March at St. Louis Community College-Forest Park.

Berkeley’s keynote address “Where Do We Go from Here? - Civil, Human and Women's Rights” will be delivered at 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 4, in the Mildred E. Bastian Center for the Performing Arts on campus, 5600 Oakland Ave.

Her address and all Women’s History Month activates on the campus are free and open to the public.

Berkeley is widely recognized for training, consulting, and organizing youth and students in a wide range of activist groups. She has been a principal consultant at “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop,” and a lead trainer for Campus Camp Wellstone. Previously, she served as president of the U.S. Student Association, as a regional field director for the NAACP, a digital strategist for AFSCME and field director for CHOICE USA.

Other sessions and discussions during the month-long celebration focus on female identity in Hip-Hop, the legacy and future of women in mathematics, gender and body image in pop culture through the lens of roller derby, and a local authors panel featuring Kathleen Finneran and Terry Baker Mulligan.
