While most Canadians are familiar with Kal Penn from the Harold and Kumar movies or from his television acting on House, 24 and How I Met Your Mother, most don’t know that for three years, Kal worked with the Obama administration as the Associate Director of White House Public Engagement where he dealt with issues like “don’t ask, don’t tell” and financial aid, as well as working as a liaison with Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities. Kal is coming to speak at Western, where he will discuss the intersection of pop culture, politics and race, using his typical humour and wit. Kal will be discussing the issues that will define our lives in the coming years, telling us how to get involved in campaigns that matter, and why we need to be. You can see him March 19th at Alumni Hall. Tickets are $20/student and $25/general and can be bought at Western Connections or online at https://www.usc-online.ca/kalpenn.asp.
