Nonviolent Action from Civil Rights to Climate Justice

April 13, 2023 at 6:00pm7:30pm EDT

Bird Library, Peter Graham Scholarly Commons (Room 114)

Legendary civil rights and environmental 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 will share 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 the Syracuse University Humanities Center’s 2022-23 Syracuse Symposium on Repair.

This event was published on November 8, 2022.
