  • Redefining Environmentalism for the Climate Emergency

    April 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
    Lafayette Public Library 775 W Baseline Rd, Lafayette, CO 80026

    East Boulder County United is proud to host First Nation water protector Waniya Locke and the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund’s Thomas Linzey. Mr. Linzey and Ms. Locke will address one of the most pressing questions of our time.

    What does environmentalism mean in an age of climate emergency?

    Both nationally and globally, communities struggle within a system that defines our activism for us. It tells us what actions and talking points are acceptable, it selects our spokespeople, and it narrows the spectrum of our engagement to agreeable forms of dissent and influence. This same system now drives global ecological collapse.

    Acceptable forms of dissent are not working. Something has to change.

    Join us to discuss what environmentalism can and needs to look like in today's climate emergency, and to explore what communities are doing now to create a new environmental movement that will build power for people and the natural world.

    -  Waniya Locke is from the Ahtna Dene, Dakota, Lakota and Anishinaabe tribes. Ms. Locke is an activist, a mother of three beautiful children, and a former Lakota Language teacher ("Language is the foundation of any people, it makes us unique and true to our Identity”). She currently resides on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

    - Thomas Linzey is an attorney and the Executive Director of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), a nonprofit law firm that has provided free legal services to over 500 local governments and nonprofit organizations since 1995. Mr. Linzey is a co-founder of the Daniel Pennock Democracy School, a program that has graduated over 5,000 lawyers, activists, and municipal officials in 24 states across the county. CELDF assists groups in creating new community campaigns to elevate the rights of those communities over rights claimed by corporations.

    Please join us as we learn more about the Green New Deal and how to get involved in the Sunrise Movement and addressing climate change.  Register here.

    Find out more about the event.

    Local Sunrise Movement supporters will present online videos about The Green New Deal and why it is such an important legislative proposal. Participants will  share stories about how the crises of climate change and inequality are threatening  people and places locally and elsewhere. We’ll hear about how the Green New Deal would protect communities across the country from the worsening impacts of climate change while boosting our economy and addressing economic injustice. 

    After the talk, there will be an introduction of local climate change activist groups. They will discuss how their groups are involved in addressing climate change, make announcements of their upcoming events and describe how to get involved at both the local and national level.

     The Sunrise Movement is a national group of young people and their allies working to educate and engage the public about climate change and a democratic way to address it, the Green New Deal. The Sunrise Movement was formed in 2018. You can find out more about them and their upcoming events at: at https://www.sunrisemovement.org.

This event also has several partners: Sustainable Resilient Longmont, the Colorado Sierra Club, the Boulder Sunrise Movement, and the Longmont Political Revolution.
