"Humanities Action Lab Hosts 2023 National Convening: "Communities Joining Forces" to Address Climate Crisis


The Humanities Action Lab is calling upon organizers, scholars, and students from ten communities at the forefront of the climate crisis to unite for the 2023 National Convening, themed "Communities Joining Forces." This event, scheduled for October 26, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, will take place at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, specifically at the Express Newark Building located at 54 Halsey Street.

Participants hailing from diverse regions, ranging from Merced, California, to Magaguez, Puerto Rico, will converge in Newark to exchange stories and strategies while establishing connections with their peers nationwide. The event aims to foster collaboration and the sharing of knowledge to collectively address the pressing climate crisis.

The program for the day includes discussions on designing a trans-local campus, where students, scholars, and organizers from across the country can learn from and support each other. Additionally, participants will engage in the development of a collective public memory project that interconnects their stories, fostering a sense of collective action and solidarity.

This National Convening serves as a vital platform for those on the front lines of the climate crisis to collaborate, learn from each other's experiences, and work together to create a more sustainable future. It promises to be a dynamic and insightful gathering of passionate individuals committed to addressing the challenges of climate change.
