Event Details

Slanted is the story of an indomitable spirit who so believes in the idea of justice that he’s willing to risk everything along the way for the dignity of self-identity. 

Join the ALPLM as Simon Tam shares a deeply personal account that will take you from anime conventions to the Supreme Court, all in the name of justice. The story provides a raw look at our legal system with unflinching honesty and offers timely insights on freedom of speech, how to connect with others we disagree with, and the power of music. Gripping, funny, enlightening, and ultimately uplifting, Slanted proves that no obstacle is too difficult to conquer –as long as you have a little heart and a lot of rock n’ roll. It’s an irrepressible story that is fresh, alive, and defines what it means to be American.

This is a hybrid event. During registration, guests will have the option to pick an in-person or virtual ticket. Guests attending in-person will have the option to purchase Simon’s book and have it signed. All participants will receive 1.5 CPDUs.

Tuesday, July 20 at 6:30pm Central time. This a hybrid event that will take place in the ALPLM’s Union Theater and be streamed via ZOOM.
