About the Event

The climate emergency can no longer be ignored. And woven into the solutions to the climate crisis is the need to acknowledge and address long-standing issues of justice. The Green New Deal represents the opportunity for the United States to build an intersectional movement for us to literally save the world through addressing environmental, economic, social, and racial justice. In March 2020, three Bay Area women writers started the blog The Daily Dose with a simple mission: to spread the message of the Green New Deal, help other activists stay encouraged in the face of unrelenting challenge, take concrete action, and stay grounded. This group of feminist writers, majority women of color, a mix of sexual orientation and gender identities, uses all the means at its disposal—essays, poetry, fiction, interviews, traditional journalism, images, videos, and more—to support and spread the vision of a freer, greener, more just future for us all. Join Daily Dose founders for Litquake Out Loud, as they discuss this writing-as-climate-activism project. With Aya de León, Vijaya Nagarajan, Mary DeMocker, Elizabeth Stark, and Susan DeFreitas. FREE, $5-10 suggested donation Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited. Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
