Fordham Law School

11AM – 4PM
Saturday, March 19, 2016
This symposium, illuminating the intersections between environmental and gender violence, will explore modes of learning and action toward the achievement of ecological sustainability and gender justice with a comprehensive framework of change from families to global society.
Panels of expert-activists who work toward these goals in several world regions, at various levels of society will outline some of widespread harms perpetrated through these forms of violence that impede ecological and socially just development and will describe and propose civil society actions and modes of education that empower citizens to overcome the violence while moving a sustainable, nonviolence local to global world order.
Participants will engage in assessing the problems in their own communities, families and work environments, and propose actions to be taken in these realms and internationally so as to mobilize global civil society to work cooperatively toward the desired order.
