Community rights author to speak in Decorah

Paul Cienfuegos will speak Thursday, Feb. 20.

As part of his Midwest book tour, longtime community rights educator Paul Cienfuegos will speak Thursday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m., at the Pulpit Rock Brewing Co. event space located at 207 College Drive in Decorah.
In his book, “How Dare We? Courageous Practices to Reclaim our Power of Citizens” (100Fires Books) Cienfuegos delves into community rights – the movement that prioritizes people’s rights. The book brims with practical approaches to solving crises ranging from workers’ rights to catastrophic climate destabilization and salmon restoration to renters’ rights.
People who care deeply about the climate, drinkable water, breathable air and living long and well on this planet are frustrated. They don’t feel heard at public hearings. They see their real wages nosediving as corporate leaders take personal rockets for a spin. In “How Dare We,” Cienfuegos, based in Oregon and author and founding director of Community Rights US, explains through a collection of essays how this happened, and more importantly, how to restore rights to the people.  
All are invited to this free event. Those unable to attend but would like to purchase Cienfuegos’ book, call Dragonfly Books to reserve a book, have it autographed and shipped out as applicable.
