Earth Week: From Brooklyn to Puerto Rico: A Just Recovery

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

The Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School invites you to join us as we celebrate Earth Day 2018 by standing in solidarity with Puerto Rico and other communities impacted by the unprecedented damages of the 2017 hurricane season. Recent events including Hurricanes Sandy, Harvey, and Maria revealed the dangers of disaster capitalism and the ineptitude of the US government to serve the needs of vulnerable communities.

Featured speaker Elizabeth Yeampierre, Executive Director of UPROSE, will look back at the root causes of these natural and man-made climate justice disasters and share the people-to-people Just Recovery model emerging in Puerto Rico and all over the United States.

Presented by the Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School.
