President Clinton will discuss hate crimes at a conference in the Marvin Center Theater Monday, according to Mike Freedman, GW’s director of public affairs.
The White House Conference on Hate Crimes, hosted by the president, will feature speeches by Clinton and several Cabinet members, Freedman said.
Clinton is expected to address the conference at 11:30 a.m.
Student Association President Kuyomars “Q” Golparvar said the SA submitted a list of 30 student leaders to attend the president’s speech.
Other students also will be able to attend, Freedman said.
The event, which is expected to be covered heavily by the national media, will be broadcast live at J Street on GWTV.
“This is really a terrific opportunity for GW students that President Clinton has decided to hold this conference on this campus,” Golparvar said.
I Street will be closed between 21st and 22nd streets during the president’s arrival and departure from the Marvin Center, Freedman said.
The Marvin Center will be open as usual during the event, Freedman said.
