Amplifying BIPOC Voices in Sustainability: Climate Change Activism

February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

As climate change becomes a more prominent topic in federal politics, it is important to remember and hear from the people who have been fighting to bring climate change and environmental issues to national attention. On Thursday, February 25th, 2021, join us for our fourth installment of the Amplifying BIPOC Voices in Sustainability Series, hosted by the Social Sustainability Coalition. Our guest panelists include Stephanie Salgado, an advisor to the Governor and Lieutenant Governor on the Climate Change Taskforce and a member of YCAT (Youth Climate Action Team), and Micheal Williams, the President of Wunk Sheek and a member of the Sustainability Advisory Council at UW-Madison. Both of our panelists have backgrounds in Climate Change Activism, so we hope you can join us as well all learn more about this topic together!
FURTHER INFORMATION:
During each month of the series, we will highlight the work of UW-Madison BIPOC community members who are engaging with sustainability. We then host a virtual event where attendees can joining us in learning firsthand from the featured community members.
This event is free and open to everyone, so invite your friends, student organizations, family members, or anyone else in your community. Send us an email at socialsustainabilititycoalition@g-groups.wisc.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
