From Kathryn Gentilello on February 17th, 2020
The Spring 2020 Liam's Legacy Symposium will focus on community science, story telling, and our changing environment. Julia Drapkin will join us from ISeeChange, a New-Orleans-based organization she founded to empower and connect communities across the country through climate-change-related data collection, along with Raina Turner, Executive Director of the Sustainable Community Solutions Network, LLC and organizer and leader of the annual Black Sustainability Summit. Plan to join us for presentations by Ms. Drapkin and Ms. Turner, along with a moderated discussion facilitated by GSU student Zeena Abdulkarim, a Political Science major who is passionate about intersectional activism, the protection of the planet and environmental justice, breaking down systems of oppression structured against minority communities, spreading awareness of these matters, and taking action through community organizing.
