MSU x PLAN Points of Intervention Tour

Date: 
Tue, Mar 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to Wed, Mar 20, 2019 - 6:00pm

Join MSU Surplus Store & Recycling, Residential and Hospitality Services, MSU Sustainability, ASMSU, and the Broad Art Museum and Art Lab as we partner with Post-Landfill Action Network to bring you this FREE 2-day event featuring workshops, speakers, and a resource fair!

The Points of Intervention Tour is a travelling environmental justice event that will invite you to question dominant and unsustainable consumption patterns, develop skills to intervene in the face of injustice, and increase awareness of the differences between a linear and circular economy.

You'll feel inspired to take personal and public action around issues you're passionate about, and advocate for environmental, social, and economic justice.
