In February 2001, OPIRG McMaster, Hamilton Action for Social Change and others brought U.S. nonviolent activist, lawyer and author Staughton Lynd to McMaster where he addressed hundreds at a public talk at Ewart Angus Centre. His views on “accompaniment – professionals using their skills to assist workers and the unrepresented” speak to students interested in pursuing social justice as they grow into careers and life after University.

The OPIRG Resource Library has some of Lynd’s books in our collection.
