Be the Change

My local bookstore, Porter Square Books, has monthly talks called Be the Change. They bring in speakers to talk about different topics of civic engagement and social impact. Today, I attended the Be the Change talk on climate change and civic engagement, featuring two Sunrise Movement Boston leaders and Francis Moore Lappé, the author of Diet for a Small Planet (and 18 other books). There was a real opportunity here to connect the dots between political action and climate action. Alas, the discussion was a bit meandering and anecdotal.
