Climate + State Violence: US Militarism
October 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This fall, Power Shift Network is launching a series of critical conversations that will strengthen the collective power and impact of the climate movement. Aiming to unravel the realities of state violence and how those systems impact our movement for climate justice, each conversation will examine the intractable links between systems of U.S. sanctioned state violence, such as U.S. Militarism, Immigration Systems, White Nationalism, and their impacts on our movement for climate justice.
Join us for our inaugural conversations, starting with this one about the ways that U.S. Militarism emboldens the climate crisis and reduces our ability to build resilient communities capable of weathering the impacts of climate catastrophes. Power Shift Network’s Dany Sigwalt will be joined by Lorah Steichen from the National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies and Generation Green’s Elsa Mengistu to discuss the foundational issues connecting the struggle to reduce military spending with our work to mitigate the climate crisis.
- Lorah Steichen, Outreach Coordinator for National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies;
- Elsa Mengistu, Core Organizer with Generation Green; and
- Dany Sigwalt, Co-Executive Director at Power Shift Network
