Join activists, students, and scholars for a series of presentations, panels, workshops, and art exhibits addressing current social and environmental injustices. This event is free. Faculty and students from Eastern Michigan University’s Social Foundations of Education Master’s Program in EcoJustice are hosting the Fifth Annual EcoJustice and Activism Conference. This year’s theme, “Reclaiming the Commons: Diverse Ways of Being and Knowing” aims to engage discussions about the importance of diverse commons practices, their relations, and their histories. We will be especially interested in local issues like water, food, housing and education given the most recent crises in Flint and Detroit. The conference begins with opening remarks from Dr. Peter Linebaugh, Professor Emeritus from the University of Toledo and world-renowned historian of the commons and their enclosure. Linebaugh will speak on “The World Turned Upside Down,” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 17 in 203 Porter. Friday’s featured speaker is Dr. Ashley Glassburn Falzetti from Eastern Michigan University. Falzetti will discuss “Heteropatriarchy Through Land Dispossession: a Miami Feminist Perspective” at 1 p.m. on March 18 in 203 Porter. On Saturday, March 19, Dr. Mary Poole from Prescott College will present on “Ecojustice and Activism in Maasailand” at 1 p.m. in 203 Porter. Also on Saturday, the featured panel, “Reclaiming the Commons in Detroit” will include: Dr. Tom Pedroni from Wayne State University and the Detroit Data and Democracy Project, Monica Lewis Patrick from We the People of Detroit, Hanifa Adjuman from the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network, Andrew Herscher from The Spatial Democracy Project, and Emily Kutil from Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management. The panel session begins at 3:45 p.m. on March 19 in 203 Porter.

WE WILL BE MEETING AT 12 PM AT THE STUDENT CENTER TO GATHER AND MARCH TO WELCH HALL Students for an Ethical and Participatory Education and The People Against the EAA Coalition will be protesting the EAA (Educational Achievement Authority) at the Board of Regents meeting on March 25th in Eastern Michigan University's Student Center. The meeting is open to the public at 1:30 PM, though we will be holding protest activities leading up to this. This is our chance to voice our concerns in a very public fashion to the people in power. Due to our university's contractual ties with the EAA, EMU is currently the battleground for this issue. Let's stand together in solidarity and fight back against for-profit corporatization of public schools! The battle with the EAA is reaching a critical point, so don't miss this! For Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti transportation information, please visit: http://www.theride.org/ And for EMU parking information, please visit: http://www.emich.edu/parking/docs/parking_map.pdf Hope to see you all there! http://www.facebook.com/events/474138072714053/

Since 2008, EMU students, faculty and staff have supported the work of the SHARE Foundation, an international nongovernmental organization that seeks to advance human rights and community development in the Central American nation of El Salvador. SHARE promotes grassroots solutions, strengthening the capacity of Salvadoran communities through a model of mutual accompaniment or international solidarity. Speakers Sarah Hall of SHARE and Zulma Hernandez, a community organizer with CRIPDES, a Salvadoran grassroots organization , will explore the current social and political reality of El Salvador and explain how community-based projects are providing opportunities for youth and women, improving health care, and establishing the foundation for long-term sustainable development. EMU students who recently participated in SHARE delegations in El Salvador will also share their experiences. Find out how you can participate in the global grassroots struggle for social justice by participating in a SHARE election observation delegation, joining a study abroad course in El Salvador, or joining the student organization SABES (Student Alliance for the Benefit of El Salvador). Refreshments will be provided and learning beyond the classroom credit will be given to all students attending.
