About the Event

Our current capitalist system is jeopardizing the future of the planet. How can we create the coalitions capable of moving us toward an ecofriendly solidarity society?

In this talk, we will explore the priorities of the powerful, the mistaken theories that justify their hegemony, and the alternative world views that are firing the imagination and efforts of feminists and other activists to bring about transformative change.
