Sharon Stone to speak on humanitarian issues at USF

The University of San Francisco is ready to welcome some big name humanitarians to campus for a question and answer interview with the college’s Center for the Pacific Rim.

Sharon Stone will be on campus beginning at 5:45 p.m. Wednesday to discuss her human rights work to “stop the exploitation of poor women throughout Asia.”

The interview will be held on the main campus, located at 330 Parker Ave., in the Fromm Hall, Xavier Room.

The Center for the Pacific Rim, “promotes understanding, communication, and cooperation among the nations, peoples and economies of the Pacific Rim,” according to university officials.

Stone, an actress and fashion model, has been active in the fight against malaria in Africa and AIDS.

She is also active in the fight for Tibetan human rights and the rights of women throughout South and Southeast Asia. She is also a board member of the San Francisco-based American Himalayan Foundation and has led the Dalai Lama into the Greek Theater at Berkeley.

The event is free and open to the public, but seating is first come, first served.
