In 1931, she became the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Addams and the residents of the Hull-House advocated for public health, fair labor practices, full citizenship rights for immigrants, public education, recreational and public space, public arts, and free speech. We take the opportunity on her birthday to celebrate the Hull-House progressive tradition, but also offer an opportunity to look forward by honoring a contemporary feminist, crossing various boundaries to bring together people working on issues of peace broadly defined in the present day.<br /> Previous speakers for Jane Addams' Birthday Conversations on Peace and Justice have included three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee and peace activist Kathy Kelly, Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin, feminist and community activist Grace Lee Boggs, American Indian activist Winona LaDuke, intersectional feminist bloggers The Crunk Feminist Collective, and transgender rights and prison activist Miss Major Griffin-Gracy.<br /> ljunkin@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20150903T161814Z-419298e-3e8-2a1130fd-Oracle Thu, 03 Sep 2015 11:18:15 -0000 Paid research study for women between 55-70 yrs old http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20150528T143553Z-12255b1-3e8-3de4835b-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=9-18-2015">September 18, 2015</a> | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20150528T143553Z-12255b1-3e8-3de4835b-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Continuing+and+Professional+Education%22">Continuing and Professional Education</a>, <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Health+and+Medical+%22">Health and Medical </a> </p> Adult female volunteers with a healthy or overweight body weight are needed for a research study, conducted by DR.
