Roseanne Barr, media celebrity and third-party candidate for President, will speak at the Church in Ocean Park in Santa Monica this Saturday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.
She will speak about her candidacy, why people should vote for her, and about the issues of the day including medical marijuana and war on drugs, foreign wars and interventions, the economy and jobs, and the attacks on civil and human rights.
There will be a question and answer session after her remarks.
Barr beat out four other candidates at last month’s Peace and Freedom Party Convention to become the Party’s presidential candidate. Her choice for Vice President, Cindy Sheehan, was also nominated and elected. The Peace and Freedom Party is the largest left party in the country.
Barr achieved fame for playing the eponymous role in her long-running TV show "Roseanne.”
She is the mother of five children and currently lives in Hawaii.
Music at Saturday's event in Santa Monica will be provided by Suzy Williams.
There is no charge for the event. The church is located at 2nd and Hill Street in Santa Monica.
