Third Act is the first large-scale effort to organize older Americans for progressive action. In this workshop, Third Act leaders, including B Fulkerson, will discuss the unique role that older Americans can play using their life experiences, skills, and resources in the climate movement. The workshop will also explore how to build an irresistible, all-volunteer community of elders who back up youth who are on the front lines of stabilizing democracy and the climate.

This event is part of the UMass Art Sustainability and Activism (ASA) series for 2023-24. ASA is a collaboration among the School of Earth & Sustainability, UMass Fine Arts Center, and the MFA for Poets and Writers. Together, ASA works to create deliberate opportunities to connect artists, scientists, and changemakers.
