The 4th Annual Cabrillo College Social Justice Conference: Imagining Change/Shaping the Future is April 30th (6-9pm, Watsonville Ctr) and May 1st (8:30am-4pm, Aptos Campus).  See socialjusticecabrillo.org for more info.

Student speakers are invited to submit proposals at socialjusticecabrillo.org by March 31st.  I will be helping to organize a session on environmental justice topics – please consider presenting there (perhaps just a redux of your topic presentation for the class).  Contact me for more info.

Ryan Kaplan, one of the real student leaders promoting sustainability at Cabrillo College, has given us permission to post a research paper he wrote for his Spring 2010 English 2 class (Elissa Wagner’s section on Environmental Ethics).  It discusses the potential of a Sustainability Office on campus at Cabrillo College, including background on Cabrillo sustainability efforts to date.  An excellent presentation of details and a very convincing case for the benefits of this approach.
