The environment is a pretty common topic of discussion these days, but what often gets lost in the discussion of how we all stand to gain or lose from what happens to the planet is the way that environmental issues intersect with social inequality, creating a starkly different set of threats along lines of race, class, gender, immigration status, and sexual identity. Climate change and pollution are often depicted as big, abstract, global problems, an argument which sometimes obscures the ecological destruction and environmental injustice happening today, often in our own communities. This month, Detroit's Jacobin Reading Group will be meeting on Tuesday July 25th from 6pm to 7:45pm at the Conely branch of the Detroit Public Library at 4600 Martin in Southwest Detroit. We will be discussing the movement for environmental justice both here in Detroit and nationally, and how people can get involved in the fight against ecological inequality and policies which hurt poor communities and communities of color. Joining us for the conversation is the East Michigan Environmental Action Council, who will be discussing their work on these issues and sharing information about how Detroiters can get involved. For people looking to get a bit of background on how we got here and the larger picture of what's going on, we put together the following readings. It's also possible that some people might have a lot to say on the subject but not a lot of time to do the readings, in which case we would still love to have you at the conversation on Tuesday. People without a lot to say who still want to learn about the issue and how to get involved are also welcome. PLEASE NOTE: We have moved the meeting to Southwest Detroit instead of our usual location and would hate for anyone to miss the above memo and head to the library in midtown instead. Again, we will be at the Conely branch of the Detroit Public Library at 4600 Martin one block north of Michigan Avenue. Readings are as follows: Principles of Environmental Justice http://www.ejnet.org/ej/principles.html Copeland, William. "From Climate Oppression to 21st Century Leadership: What Will the New Black Economy Look Like?" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/william-copeland/from-climate-oppression-t_b_6594692.html Kahle, Trish.

Designated representatives of local peace groups discuss peace issues. Also, to share announcements of upcoming events. Agenda TBD: Potential topics -- Federal Budget -- The Wars: Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen -- Report on Hiroshima event with Sister Megan Rice -- Announcements Note: the group usually meets on a 2nd Thursday of the month. However, there is a large event on that day in September which would have made parking around Swords into Plowshares difficult. We chose to meet on the first Thursday (Sept 7) this one time.
