Climate Action Book Club: Drawdown

Climate Action Book Club: The Intersectional Environmentalist

 
Thursday, February 16 | 8:00 am
Virtual & In-Person options! Details below!

 

Climate Action Book Club is bringing you great books and discussion three times a year, so mark your calendars for the third Thursday in February, June, and October!

This February, we will be discussing The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet by Leah Thomas. This Climate Action Book Club is happening both in person and virtually! Join us in person at the Sustainable Connections office for some coffee and snacks or from the comfort of your own desk!

“Too often, environmentalist proposals and platforms appear willing to sacrifice people — usually the most vulnerable — in exchange for saving the planet. Leah Thomas’ The Intersectional Environmentalist aims to fix this problem, offering philosophical defenses for protecting those affected most by climate change, as well as strategies young activists can use to turn theory into practice.”―Bustle.com

Think local! The Intersectional Environmentalist is available at Village Books: https://www.villagebooks.com/book/9780316279291 and you can request a copy from the Bellingham Public Library at https://bellingham.bibliocommons.com/v2/record/S150C584621.

We don’t want cost to be a barrier to anyone who wants to participate, so we are providing a limited number of copies for free. Please email emily@sustainableconnections.org to request financial assistance.
