Maeve McBride, Coordinator for 350Vermont, will weave together her personal story of activism, the current state of the climate crisis, and 350Vermont's organizing model to build a climate justice movement in Vermont.
She will speak about 350Vermont's current campaigns to keep Vermont Tar Sands free, and to divest institutions from fossil fuel companies, and share tools and personal reflections on ways for people to engage and navigate the climate crisis. She will draw from "Organizing Cools the Planet" by Hilary Moore & Joshua Kahn-Russell and resources from The Ruckus Society.
