On April 23, 2016, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis made his only Southern California appearance during his book tour as part of the Rising Up Speaker Series. About 250 people gathered at the Neighborhood Unitarian Church in Pasadena to hear Varoufakis relate the inside story about his 5 months fighting austerity policies imposed by the European Union.
