Environmental ActivistOn October 12 at 4:30pm, Skyline College Library is pleased to host “Take the Movement Home & Build it in the Streets: Pandemic Perspectives on the Climate Crisis,” a virtual discussion with Goldman Environmental Prize recipient mark! Lopez, co-director of the East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice.

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the foremost international award honoring grassroots environmental activists. Lopez received this prestigious prize in 2017 for his successful campaign to persuade the state of California to provide comprehensive lead testing and cleanup of East Los Angeles homes contaminated by a battery smelter. However, his work as a community organizer and activist began long before then. Find out more in this interview.

All members of the SMCCCD community are invited to attend!

Please register for the webinar in advance:


“Take the Movement Home” will be moderated by Skyline College Chemistry Professor Susanne Schubert and Associate Professor and Librarian Pia Walawalkar. Faculty are encouraged to bring their class(es) and/or offer credit for attendance. Questions? Please contact walawalkars@smccd.edu.
