2020 Denny Lecture webinar with Climate Activist Derek Hoshiko
April 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pmFree
You are invited to join MOHAI’s free live 2020 Denny Lecture webinar featuring local climate activist and community organizer Derek Hoshiko on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, 7 – 9 pm. The museum is pleased to provide this popular annual event online and free of charge. During this lecture turned webinar, Hoshiko will explore movement moments from the first Earth Day in 1970 to the WTO “Battle in Seattle” in 1999, from Occupy Wall Street to the Thin Green Line, and from the youth #ClimateStrike and #FridaysForFuture to the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn about Hoshiko’s personal journey as we honor the work of activists marked by 50 years of Earth Day celebrations and days of action while acknowledging where we have failed. In the end, it is about power and a deep reflection on our local region and our own personal relationship to this place we call home. We look forward to your participation in this unique online presentation. Participation is open to the first 500 registrants. Pre-registration required.
