On Thursday, July 6th, the People’s Organization for Progress will participate in a press conference and rally in support of beleaguered Essex County College professor Lisa Durden, who was recently suspended and then terminated for a recent appearance on Fox Five in a debate segment on The Black Lives Matter Movement.
Durden, both a popular instructor at the college and a popular media personality, was let go suddenly in the middle of a school session in a spectacle and specious manner! Durden’s ordeal has sparked a firestorm of protest and has become a national story. Durden has also secured legal counsel for potential legal action. The press conference and rally will take place in front of the Livingston Town Hall, located at 357 S. Livingston Av, in Livingston NJ. The press conference and rally will take place at 5pm. Later, at 7pm, participants will address the Essex County Board of Freeholders there. The gathering is organized by a coalition of Durden supporters called Educators And Students United to Reinstate Professor Durden… #reinstatelisadurden
