Join the College of Liberal Arts and the U-Belong Student Organization for a talk and audience Q&A with a representative from the nonprofit Intersectional Environmentalist.

All are invited to attend Diandra Esparza’s presentation on Wednesday, April 3 in 10 Sparks from 6:45-8:30pm. She is the Executive Director of Intersectional Environmentalist and will provide an overview of intersectional environmentalism (which was the focus of her colleague Leah Thomas’s book of the same name) and the applicability for students personally and professionally. Graduate students Jude Sullivan and Brianna Donaldson-Morton, both social psychology students, will co-host the evening and ask questions to keep the dialogue rolling.
Besides the presentation, Diandra will spend April 3 and 4 with groups on campus. She is meeting with folks from McCourtney Institute for Democracy, Geography and EMS, Penn State Sustainability, and the Student Farm. In addition, she is visiting two psychology classes.

Come learn more about how environmentalism as a movement has and must intersect with the needs and issues of underrepresented communities and also to infuse joy in the work in order to be more successful at ensuring climate justice for all.
