BRUNSWICK — PeaceWorks will host a free Earth Day community conversation 7 p.m. Monday, April 22, at Brunswick Unitarian Church, 1 Middle Street. The conversation will look at the ways in which our three major crises (climate, economy and militarism) interact.
In order to solve the crisis of Climate Change we must consider the impact of the Pentagon’s huge carbon footprint and the ways our Economy funds that footprint with more than 60 cents of every tax dollar, while devastating our social needs budget for education, health care, housing, job training and all that assists our most vulnerable citizens.
We welcome these panelists who will lead us toward conversation: Chloe Maxmin, newly elected State Representative of District 88; Mary Beth Sullivan, long time social worker and activist for social justice; Bob Klotz, co-founder of 350 Maine and Physician Assistant; Paige Nygaard, a student at College of the Atlantic who is currently working with Environmental ChangeMakers.
Tying together the ways in which economic inequality, militarism and climate issues work together to prevent a future in which our children and our planet can thrive is what we hope the evening will achieve.
