The Center for Peacemaking will host a Soup with Substance on climate activism and environmental action on Wednesday, April 6, at noon in the AMU 163.
Join us to watch two short films about climate activism and environmental action. A short conversation will follow the viewings.
- What’s Done to the Land Happens to the People (1985): When floods caused by strip mining almost killed her family, a Harlan County, Kentucky, woman convinced her community that the strip mining companies “have damaged us and they owe us something.”
- L’eau Est La Vie (Water is Life) (2019): On the banks of Louisiana, fierce Indigenous women are ready to fight—to stop the corporate blacksnake and preserve their way of life. They are risking everything to protect Mother Earth from the predatory fossil fuel companies that seek to poison it.
