Building a Movement for Climate Justice

Building a Movement for Climate Justice
Speaker: Chris Williams
Date: March 31st, 2011
Time: 7:00pm
Place: 201 Sullivan Science Building, UNCG

With a global environmental crisis in food production, climate change, biodiversity loss and social inequity, how can we take inspiration from the events in Egypt and Wisconsin to build a movement for real change? In building a movement, what can we learn from the fact that women bear a disproportionate burden of the effects of climate change and
yet are at the forefront of the fight against it?

Chris Williams is a longtime environmental activist, based in New York City. He is professor of physics and chemistry at Pace University, and chair of the science department at Packer Collegiate Institute. Williams is also a frequent contributor to the International
Socialist Review (ISR) magazine. Ecology and Socialism: Solutions to Capitalist Ecological Crisis (2010) is Williams’ first book.
