DIY DEI: Climate Change
Wednesday, November 18th
Hoofer Ambassadors invites you to come and chat about the climate crisis with us! It will be an hour-long discussion and reflection about our thoughts on this topic and our reactions to the resources below. We will consider what they make us think about, what we can learn from them going forward, and what they imply for our own lives and the world more largely. The event is co-hosted with the UW-Madison BIPOC Coalition. No background information on the climate crisis is necessary. We hope you'll join us!
We recommend you sign up in advance. If you would like to do so, click HERE. The Zoom information can be found below or on RecHub.
