THE TRUMP EFFECT: Women, Weapons and the Weather

Join Women’s March team member Nantasha Williams, Executive Director for Common Cause NY, Susan Lerner, Patagonia’s NYC District Environmental Coordinator Brenna Cohen, Mireia Lopez, Creative Director and Founder of Milo TricotAryaana Khan, youth climate leader at Alliance for Climate Education and Brooklyn Fashion +Design Accelerator Executive Director Deb Johnson for a discussion on the current political climate and how the U.S. government has responded to the rights of women, pressing environmental and human rights issues as well as ethical violations since the 2017 presidential inauguration.

The panel will take place on the Pratt Institute campus Saturday, March 24, 2018, 3:30-5 pm as part of Pratt’s 8th annual Sustainability Crash Course, a day-long series of workshops with a host of experts from Pratt’s sustainable design faculty and elsewhere.

In addition to the panel, we’ll have a Women’s March/Common Cause NY voter registration table set up for attendees to learn about how to register and other ways to get involved with civic engagement as well as how to create their own voter registration. The goal is for universities nationwide to train students on how to run a voter registration drive on campus, in an effort to boost voter turnout for 2018 and beyond.

Register here.
