Sustainability Forum, Keynote Winona LaDuke

Sustainability is one the key pillars at Morris and because of the amazing work being done both on campus and in our community, MCSA has organized an event to showcase some of that work. This year we will be addressing more environmental justice themes and showcasing indigenous voices in Sustainability. 

Join us for a few short presentations from indigenous leaders Michelle Montgomery, Teresa Peters, and Erika Bailey Johnson followed by internationally acclaimed activist Winona LaDuke. 

After the presentations there will be a Q&A with all presenters and a reception. For the full schedule, view attached document. Feel free to attend as many or as few as 1 of the presentations as you are able.
