Sustainability Showcase Series - Erin Brown
Sustainability Showcase Series Lecture: How is the movement to end sexual violence intertwined in the movement for climate justice? What does addressing sexual violence look like on Penn State’s campus?

Erin Brown (she/her/hers), Paterno Fellow and Schreyer Scholar; UPUA Director of Sexual Assault and Misconduct Prevention

Join Erin Brown as she addresses gender-based violence (GBV) from a global perspective to give a brief overview of US foreign policy and how it intertwines with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Erin will also talk about "marketplace feminism" and the "empowerment" movement and address how they may actually belittle real feminist work to address controversial issues. Then, Erin will describe some of the activist work she's done at Penn State and the barriers she has run into. She will end with her vision of the actionable steps Penn State can take to address sexual violence and how students can become involved.
