Just Talk: War Refugees: Risk, Justice, and Moral Responsibility

Hosted by UCCS Kraemer Family Library Wednesday at 4:30 PM – 6 PM UCCS Kraemer Family Library 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80918

The current refugee crisis is unparalleled in history in its size and severity. According to the UNHCR, there are roughly 70 million refugees worldwide, the vast majority of whom are refugees as the result of wars and other military actions. This social and political crisis—1 in every 120 humans is a refugee—cries out for a response. Morally and politically, how should we understand this crisis? What, if anything, do we owe war refugees, and why?

Join UCCS Philosophy Professor Dr. Jennifer Kling as she discusses her latest book, War Refugees: Risk, Justice, and Moral Responsibility, published in April 2019 by Lexington Books. 978-1-4985-6248-5.📷SEP 19

Colorado Springs Climate Strike

Hosted by 350 Colorado Springs and 12 others Friday at 10 AM – 1 PM Colorado Springs City Hall 107 N Nevada Ave # 300, Colorado Springs, CO 80903

The climate crisis is all around us: intensifying storms, hurricanes, heatwaves and wildfires, slow-burning disasters like drought and famine, and so much more. And the costs are paid for in the lives and livelihoods of those least responsible for causing the problem.

We are at a pivotal moment to show a roaring public upswell for real climate solutions. With the Trump administration propping up fossil fuel billionaires at our expense, we need bold action to move us towards a just transition at all levels.

On September 20th, students will leave school, those who can will leave places of work; candidates will step off the campaign trail, sports stars off the field or court; actors will scrub off makeup and teachers will lay down chalk; cooks will close restaurants and pensioners will break daily routines.

The youth have called us all to stand with them for this historic global day of action. Join us at City Hall at 10am on September 20th as we strike for climate with millions around the world.

If your organization is interested in partnering with us. Please email us at volunteer@350colorado.orgSEP 20
