Fighting with Your Whole Heart: Human Rights and the New Science on Fracking
May 14 • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm• Free
The Spring Creek Project welcomes acclaimed biologist, author, and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber to deliver the keynote address on the opening day of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change at The Whiteside Theatre on May 14, 2018.
Branded the “toxic avenger” by Rolling Stone, Sandra Steingraber is a biologist, science advisor for Americans Against Fracking, and co-founder of both Concerned Health Professionals of New York and New Yorkers Against Fracking. She is the award-winning author of three books, including the acclaimed Living Downsteam, and is the subject of the documentary Unfractured.
Preceding Steingraber’s keynote, we invite you to experience “Unsilenced: Art and Sounds of Resistance,” a listening room and exhibit featuring local and national artists.
To open the keynote address, Jan Michael Looking Wolf and Dana Reason will perform an original song they composed for this event. Grass Roots Books & Music will be selling titles by Steingraber. Her address will be followed by a book signing.
The doors to the Whiteside will open at 6 pm. and the keynote will begin at 7:00. This event is free and open to the public, though to ensure space for all attendees, a ticket is required. Please present your Eventbrite ticket (printed or on a mobile device) at the door.
“We are all members of a great human orchestra,” says Steingraber, “and it is now time to play the Save the World Symphony. You do not have to play a solo, but you have to know what instrument you hold and find your place in the score.”
