Foreign Affairs Symposium: Xiuhtezcatl Martinez
March 4 @ 7:30 pm
Indigenous climate activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez will be speaking at Shriver Hall on Wednesday, March 4th with doors opening at 7:30 PM. Martinez began his activism career at 5-years old and has now spoken around the world, including several times at the United Nations. He is the current youth director for Earth Guardians, a worldwide conservation organization fostering youth leadership in climate and social justice movements. Martinez also uses his music to shed light on environmental issues. He released his first hip-hop album in 2014, which featured songs about fracking and deforestation, and another solo album in 2018.
Our future speakers include civil rights icon Angela Davis and Syrian education advocate Muzoon Almellehan. We are aiming to live stream our events for those who are not physically able to attend but would appreciate it if you could circulate this message to your students/faculty.
We believe that it would be a valuable experience to learn from the leaders of these movements given the current socio-political concerns about social, racial, political, and environmental justice.
Attached below is our line-up with the time and dates of each event.
