Fighting for the Climate in the Age of Trump

Saturday, February 25, 5-8 pm

Verso Books, 20 Jay Street, Suite 1010, Brooklyn

Join four organizers and thinkers at the forefront of the struggle against pipelines, climate change, and environmental racism to discuss the future of the climate movement.

How do we organize against climate change in an age of increasing crackdowns on protesters, with an anti-science and pro-fossil fuel federal government? From protests at Standing Rock to national divestment campaigns, we will discuss local strategies to prevent the destruction of communities, land, water, and the planet.

The panel will conclude with a kick-off of NYC’s Divest from DAPL Campaign, put on by a coalition of grassroots groups.

Speakers:

Kate Aronoff—Writing Fellow, In These Times magazine; co-founder of the Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network and former Communications Manager for the New Economy Coalition

Judith Leblanc—member of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma and director of the Native Organizers Alliance

Patrick Robbins—Co-Director of Sane Energy Project, he has been fighting the spread of fracked gas infrastructure in New York since 2011.

Anne Spice—Tlingit member of Kwanlin Dun First Nation, a doctoral student in anthropology at the CUNY Graduate Center, and a member of the NYC Stands with Standing Rock Collective.

Hosted by Grassroots Action NY, Bronx Climate Justice North and The New Inquiry
