What would it look like to join a team committed to bold civil disobedience at the intersection of climate emergency and racial justice? At our November Climate Hub meeting, we’ll explore this question with Tim Nafziger, a local organizer. He’ll talk about why in this moment when the Amazon is burning and oil pumps are still pumping in our backyards, creative nonviolent direct action (NVDA) is one of the tools we need to draw on as a community.
Come learn more about an emerging network committed to facilitating concrete acts of reparations and atonement. You can read more about this Yet-to-be-Named network here: http://eastpointpeace.org/east-point-climate-crisis-yet-named-network/ or check out a zine about the network: https://earthlingopinion.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/yet-to-be-named-network-zine-single-pages.pdf
We’ll discuss what we can learn from movements like Extinction Rebellion, Youth Climate Strike and Showing up for Racial Justice.
