When: Wednesday, Feb. 19th from Noon-3PM
Where: The Co-working Space @ 2401 Walnut St.
The Roots & Media Divestment Roadshow is a three hour, multi-media teach-in with social media guru Joe Solomon, heavy-weight educator Johanna de Graffenreid, and a founding member of the rapidly-growing national Divestment Student Network. Among us we bring nearly two decades of experience fighting the good fight paired with the fire of the youth movement, building on the hard work of thousands of grassroots activists from generations past.
The Roadshow's first hour provides an in-depth look at the history of the climate justice movement. We do this by honoring the resistance of environmental justice frontline communities, and weaving their stories together. This is followed by an engaging workshop on the art of breaking through on social media to get the word out about your successes. The final piece presents a vision for the future of our divestment campaigns: we explore the power of organized students and youth in coalition with one another, and how the example of the Divestment Student Network.
Members of SPARC chronicle their sustainability campaigns.
