Feb. 4th Wilkinson event

All We Can Save: Leading on Climate with Truth, Courage, and Solutions

Dr. Katharine Wilkinson | February 4, 2021 | 7 p.m. | Register

“My heart is moved by all I cannot save,” poet Adrienne Rich writes. Yours may be too — and by all that we, together, still can. In this keynote, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson shares vital insights from the bestselling anthology All We Can Save, which she co-edited with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. As the mighty chorus in this collection shows, there is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist. Summoning truth, courage, and solutions, we may turn away from the brink and toward a just and livable future for everyone.
