When climate change looms large, election uncertainties have us all on edge, the pandemic has no definitive end in sight, racism and racial injustices continue to compound, and everything feels overwhelming, what do you do? How do you find your way to meaningful intersectional action? Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Wilkinson will join Middlebury virtually on Thursday, November 12 at 6 p.m. EST for a special conversation about their experiences and draw on insights from their new book, All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, a collection of essays by women spanning backgrounds, approaches, and generations at the forefront of the climate movement. This talk is an incredible opportunity to dive into topics crucial to our campus and our world. We hope you will weigh in on what you’d like to see covered. A recording of the conversation will be available for those unable to attend the synchronous event.   

Follow up conversations to discuss and reflect will be hosted by cosponsors are being planned – stayed tuned.
