Film & Jones Library Discussion Series: Racism and Climate Change Are About You

AMHERST, MA – Join us on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Woodbury Room for the next event in this ongoing film and discussion series that may educate, touch your heart, and inspire you to action to help dismantle racism.

In this December 2017 TED talk, Dr. Atyia Martin examines the intersections of racism and climate change. She proposes ways for us to scrutinize bias in ourselves, our workplaces, and our social groups. Dr. Martin is the new Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Boston. Under her leadership, Boston will focus on advancing racial equity as the foundation of the Resilience Strategy process. After the screening and discussion, work will continue in small working groups to advance anti-racism action projects that have been undertaken.

Free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact Janet Ryan at 413/259-3223.

This film series is co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.  More information about Coming Together can be found athttp://www.coming-together.org/.
