George Lakey (Swarthmore College, emeritus)

Continuing a series of events associated with Environmental Storytelling CNY, legendary social justice activist and author George Lakey draws on principles from his 2018 book, How We Win: A Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning, to discuss his work with the Earth Quaker Action Team (EQAT), a mostly youth-led coalition, which he co-founded to pursue ecojustice at the intersections of race, class, queerness, and the climate crisis. He shares stories of how the EQAT successfully mobilizes cross-sections of society to address the massive structural challenges we face in the United States, and how event attendees can also create inclusive nonviolent campaigns.

This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Repair.”
