Climate Activist Author Wen Stephenson Appearing at Wentworth
March 9, 2020
Wen Stephenson, author of What We’re Fighting for Now Is Each Other: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Climate Justice, will speak in Blount Auditorium on Wentworth’s campus on Tuesday, March 17 at 6:00 p.m.
Stephenson, a former editor at the Boston Globe and the Atlantic, and currently a contributing writer for the Nation, will share his story of climate activism and how individual citizens can insist upon change.
“Wen Stephenson has written nothing less than a love letter to the student organizers, preachers, and frontline fighters struggling for climate justice across the United State,” says author and social activist Naomi Klein.
Stephenson’s work has also appeared in The New York Times, Slate, and Grist.
This event is sponsored by the Colleges of the Fenway Center for Sustainability and the Environment and Wentworth Institute of Technology.
