The UMass Lowell Greeley Speaker series focuses on settler colonial and structural violence against Indigenous peoples as well as resistance mobilized by Indigenous communities against powerful entities locally and transnationally. This talk will highlight the struggles of Indigenous peoples at the frontlines of the climate crisis: the devastating impact on Indigenous communities and the ways in which they are responding to climate change based on Indigenous conceptions of climate justice.  Somnath Mukherji is an activist and transnational community organizer. Presently, he is the Development Coordinator of Association for India’s Development, a volunteer movement promoting sustainable, equitable and just development in India. This is a hybrid event; register to receive Zoom link.
