*Sandra Steingraber* Toward an Unfractured Future: Science, Civil Disobedience, and Feminism in the Fight Against Fossil Fuel Expansion

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

FREE

This talk examines the science behind the social movement to secure an unfractured future for our children and the role that civil disobedience and feminist activism are playing in opening a space in the culture for that science to speak.

The award-winning documentary film Unfractured tells the story of the successful fight for a ban on fracking in New York State. Steingraber’s public lecture, which will immediately be followed by a screening of the film, will explore the science behind the scenes, women’s leadership within the movement, and ongoing tactics and strategies—with special focus on current issues here in Massachusetts.

 

Biologist Sandra Steingraber is co-founder of Concerned Health Professionals of New York, co-author of the Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings on the Risks and Harms of Fracking, and science advisor to Americans Against Fracking.
