JVP, Palestine, & Climate Justice: A Conversation w/Naomi Klein

Join us for a live conversation with Naomi Klein about climate justice, white supremacy, and the movement for Palestinian liberation.  W/ JVP's Rabbi Alissa Wise.

When: Thursday, December 5th -- 5pm west/8pm east
Where: Zoom webinar (link to join will be sent upon registration)

Registrants are encouraged to read Naomi Klein's latest book, "On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal" prior to this event.

Klein is one of the world’s foremost thinkers about power and injustice, and a longtime supporter of JVP’s work. Her observations about the causes and far-reaching impact of climate change have proven to be downright prophetic. 

I do hope you’ll join us for this rare opportunity to ask questions and think about our work in the context of the climate emergency.

We invite you to read in advance portions of her latest book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, where Klein characterizes rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of “climate barbarism,” and calls on all of us to break down the silos of our activist work. If you don’t have access to the book, we will send you links to suggested pre-reading when you register.

  • We encourage you to gather with others in person where possible, so you can keep the conversation going using provided prompts and guiding questions. This is a chance to invite your friends and neighbors to connect on these issues, or fill out the form you'll receive upon registration to let other JVP activists in your area know that you have space and are willing to host a viewing and discussion.

  • Once you register, we will send you links and a form for asking Klein and Rabbi Alissa Wise questions in advance.

I hope to see you there,
