On Campus Event: Climate Change- Confronting Our Future to Change Our Past– Tues. April 23 @ 7PM

Climate Change: Confronting Our Past to Change Our Future
Tuesday, April 23 7:00 PM
Roux Center Lantern
Reception to follow for the Bowdoin Community at 30 College

Climate change threatens our living planet. Less-developed nations face the greatest risk from rising seas and parched land. By empowering women and smashing all barriers that prevent women from achieving full reproductive autonomy, John Seager argues that we can uphold inalienable individual rights while fostering a better, safer, less-crowded world. His organization, Population Connection, believes this is the single best way to prevent climate chaos. “Population control” is never the answer. Instead, his presentation will show that unfettered access to health care and abolishment of Trump’s Global Gag Rule are necessary parts of a sustainable future.

John Seager advises the #Fight4HER National Campaign. A former congressional Chief of Staff and EPA official, he is the president of Population Connection Action Fund, the progressive national grassroots organization dedicated to fighting for full reproductive autonomy for every woman everywhere.

Reception for the Bowdoin Community will follow at 30 College.

This event is open to the public free of charge, and is co-sponsored by the Economics Department, Environmental Studies Program, the Sexuality, Women and Gender Center (SWAG), and the Sustainability Office.
