Hello Colleagues,

Many thanks to all those who participated in our Fall and Winter Climate Justice and Resilience events! The series continues in Spring, and I am writing now so you can put events that interest you on your calendar/syllabus and consider bringing your students (or viewing the recordings asynchronously). I’ll be writing again with details (and possibly an additional event) and we’ll also be updating our website soon with this information.

I’m happy to say that we have a broad collection of topics and several collaborators in Spring, including the Equity Symposium, Farmworker Justice Day, and Reimagining Community Safety (see also Eirik Steinhoff’s recent email for additional RCS lectures).
