Imagining Alternative Environments: A Products of our Environment Workshop

Building on Isabel Lane’s October 6th Working Wednesday, this workshop will give members of the PPEH community an opportunity to engage in a discussion about abolition and environmental justice. After a brief introduction, attendees will read and discuss together a poem that imagines alternatives and entangled solutions to the carceral system and climate crisis. Jane Robbins Mize will also be seeking feedback from participants on how best to engage these topics for a range of audiences in the upcoming working group, Products of our Environment.

RSVP here!
