Former Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold to speak at RC events
Former Senator from Wisconsin Russ Feingold is the keynote speaker at this year’s Rockford College Business Luncheon to be held Wednesday, Sept. 12, and will also speak as part of the College’s Forum Series later that day. Feingold’s remarks will focus on both leadership and his views outlined in his book, While America Sleeps: A Wake up Call for the Post 9/11 Era. Both events will take place on the Rockford College campus, 5050 E. State St., Rockford.

In his book, While America Sleeps, Feingold addresses American policy both domestically and abroad since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and what steps must be taken to ensure that the next 10 years are focused on the international problems that threaten America.
