Human rights activist Paul Engler, co-author of This Is An Uprising: How Nonviolent Revolt is Shaping the Twenty-First Century, will speak at the ninth annual Central Coast Bioneers Conference on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Oak Glen Pavilion in the SLO Botanical Garden. Engler will discuss how social movements of the past can guide contemporary fights for justice. Ted Hamilton, program director of the Central Coast nonprofit Ecologistics, said in a press release that he believes Engler's workshop will demonstrate how local progressive movements can "fit in with a larger movement for social and climate justice."
The conference will also include pre-recorded videos on topics like climate change and the use of Google Earth Outreach to map environmental solutions. Visit ecologistics.org for more information. Δ
