The Intersections of Climate, Health, & Racism: A Virtual Seminar

How does the global climate crises interact with the global COVID-19 crisis? And how do both of those intersect with our nation's ongoing struggle with systemic racism and violence against Black lives? Join local environmental organizations across Central Pennsylvania on August 13th for a seminar discussion on the intersectionality of climate, health, and racism. Hear from Dr. Mark Sentesy, a Philosophy professor at Penn State, as he reveals the deep connections between humanity's three greatest threats. EcoJustice Arts Educator, Dr. Karen Keifer-Boyd will moderate the discussion. Dr. Mark Sentesy is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies at The Pennsylvania State University.

She co-founded and serves as editor of the journal, Visual Culture & Gender, and she has writings on feminist pedagogy, visual culture, inclusion, cyberart activism and more are in over 50 peer-reviewed research publications.

Global Fridays For Future Movement Climate Strike

Momentum 360

just wanted to let you know that given the circumstances, we (Fridays For Future State College) will be holding a digital climate strike instead of a physical one. This means that there is a fun, simple and easy way to strike: just snap a photo of you with your sign and add it to this meetup page (feel free to get creative!) Then it will be copied to Faith to post it on Fridays For Future State College Instagram (@fffstatecollege) around the end of this week.That's it! (Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure you have to have an Instagram account in order to use that link. I assure you, our Instagram is pretty awesome!) If you are questioning weather this form of striking actually has an impact, just look at how much it spread the word about Greta Thunberg. Without social media, I would not be aware of Fridays For Future (because that's basically how it all got started), and my friends and I would never have started our local chapter. So, don't doubt the power of social media! Faith (17 years old)
