We invite you to join this workshop on queer environmentalism.
Brooklyn Community Pride Center invites you this workshop, which is part of a four-part series (held 3/24, 4/7, 4/21, and 5/5 all from 7:00pm to 8:30pm), focusing on empowering queer communities through environmental education and activism and will be led by Julia Goldsamt, Clio Jensen, and Jenna Van Holten, three senior Environmental Studies majors at Bryn Mawr College.
While at first glance, climate change and environmentalism may not appear to be queer issues, they are especially relevant to queer communities because the denial of land ownership and the marginalization of vulnerable groups are in many ways linked, and that reconnecting with the environment can create an empowering sense of place and community. This workshop will focus on breaking down heteronormativity in nature and public spaces and connecting participants with organizations in Brooklyn that are currently doing environmental justice work.
All four workshops are hosted via Zoom (Meeting ID: 995 7457 9038).
