Speaker: Amara Ifeji, undergraduate student, Northeastern University; Grassroots Development Coordinator, Maine Environmental Education Association
In this talk, Amara will speak to her lived experiences as a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) individual, the marginalization she has faced in fostering a connection to place and environment, and how her passion for water justice led her to not only foster this connection herself, but to also serve as a conduit for other BIPOC and female-identifying students.
