Civil Rights: Not What We Thought They Were

Deedra Abboud will discuss some alarming issues in the current state of civil rights in America.

The most disturbing development is the growing discovery that laws many of us have taken for granted as ‘established law’ are being successfully challenged. It’s not just new attacks on civil rights, it’s that the very definition of civil rights, and who has them, is changing before our eyes.

Deedra Abboud is a civil rights activist and immigration attorney who has devoted her life to defending the rights of America’s most vulnerable. Born and raised in Arkansas, Deedra found herself drawn to the diverse and friendly communities of Arizona, and has spent the last 20 years making The Grand Canyon State her home. 



The meeting is free and open to the public. Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional Continental breakfast available for a $5 donation. The meeting begins at 10:00 am.

A Children's Program is available during the Speaker Meeting. Please see the HSGP Meetup for the Children's Program at this meeting for more information and to RSVP with the number of children attending.
