Earth Day

An Evening with Frances Moore LAPPÉ

Celebrate Earth Day with renowned activist and author Frances Moore Lappé as she presents: Climate Crisis In Focus: Finding Hope Through Democratic Action
Frances Moore Lappé is the author or co-author of 20 books about world hunger, living democracy, and the environment, beginning with the three-million copy Diet for a Small Planet (1971). In Spring 2021, Lappé released It’s Not Too Late! Crisis, Opportunity, and the Power of Hope.
In America today, many of us can feel overwhelmed by the simultaneous political, economic, and climate crises upon us. Frances Moore Lappé discusses these three interacting roots of our problems: a brutal form of capitalism, big money’s grip on our democracy, and climate catastrophe. She shows us how realizing their unity can be empowering, not overwhelming. They open a historic opportunity. Addressing one crisis, we are working to solve all three. Through inspiring stories and startling facts, Frances helps us realize our own power to generate a new story as we tackle these root causes with exhilarating, courageous action—together.

This event will be entirely virtual and hosted over Zoom.
