"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Climate Change: Whose Story? A Public Forum At BRIC Arts Media House

On May 17, 2018, Bric Arts Media House is hosting a free public forum entitled "Climate Change: Whose Story?" that will be of interest to residents not only in and around Red Hook and Gowanus, but throughout Brooklyn.  After Hurricane Sandy and the flooding that ensued, we all know that climate change is definitely OUR story.

Here are the details.
Stories shape how we understand the world, our place in it, and our ability to change it. While many understand the crisis of climate change threatens human civilization, demand for government action lags far behind. Who is telling the story of climate change and how does it shape our response to this crisis? What stories lead people to action?

Come out to media and culture hotspot BRIC ARTS/MEDIA HOUSE for a provocative public forum featuring leading figures in communications, journalism, politics and activism that will address the frameworks, strategies, and challenges in communicating the urgency of climate change.

A panel of leading figures in communications, journalism, politics, and activism will discuss the frameworks, strategies, and challenges in communicating the urgency of climate change.

Speaker Lineup:
David Fenton: Veteran PR Executive
Jabari Brisport: Activist and Former Candidate, Green Party
Yessenia Funes, Environmental Justice Reporter, Earther
Lindsay Meiman, US Communications Coordinator, 350.org Event Details:
