1) Climate Insurgency: Monday June 265:30-6:30pm Pacific/8:30-9:30 Eastern 

An intro to Climate Insurgency strategy, weaving together many strands of climate organizing–mass nonviolent direct action, freezing fossil fuel infrastructure, public trust, and just transition–into a global strategic framework.

2) Public Trust: Wednesday July 55:30-6:30pm Pacific/ 8:30-9:30 Eastern 

How can we “flip the script” in our nonviolent direct actions, making it clear that the fossil fuel industry and the government that does their bidding are unlawful, and that we are upholding the constitution and the public trust? Use of the Public Trust Doctrine for climate protection has been pioneered by young people represented by Our Children’s Trust. With Julia Olsen, Executive Director, Chief Legal Counsel, Our Children’s Trust

3) Just Transition: Monday July 105:30-6:30pm Pacific/ 8:30-9:30 Eastern 

How can we organize to avoid letting our opponents pit jobs, workers, and unions against climate, water and community protection? How can we build “just transition” that includes a better future for workers who produce and use fossil fuels, construction workers who build fossil fuel infrastructure, and communities that depend on them? With Richard Lipsit, President. Western New York Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO
