BRATTLEBORO How are Racial Justice and Climate Justice Connected? : What does racial justice have to do with climate justice? What do we mean by intersectionality? This interactive workshop explores the foundations of these justice movements and how and why they are inextricably bound. Participants will have the opportunity to consider and reflect on their own experiences, listen to the experiences of others, and learn new language and concepts to help support a deepening investigation of climate and racial justice. This is 350Vermont's introductory workshop that offers a series of starting points and questions, rather than a conclusive or summative approach to this content. It will be facilitated by Phoebe Gooding and Abigail Mnookin. 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. $0 to $40 (sliding scale). Bring cash/check to the workshop. Whetstone Studio for the Arts, 28 William St., 1st fl.
