Kal Penn to speak at IU

Democracy Matters holding event on Sept. 28

Kal Penn, actor of "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" fame, will be visiting IU for the second time in a year.
At 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 28 in Dunn Meadow, Democracy Matters, a group new to IU this semester, will co-host Penn's speech with Students for Change. Students for Change is a combination of IU College Democrats and Students for Barack Obama. Music, games, free food and voter registration will be available to attendees.

Democracy Matters advocates for publicly financed elections. The event will also include a mass debate discussing the criticisms of holding elections which are publicly financed.

"I'm trying to get more Republicans involved," said sophomore Brianna Dines, president of Democracy Matters. "We want all opinions. Republicans, democrats, independents, socialists, whatever. We want everyone to have a say in what's going on."
