* Room 5409 - please check in with ID at the front desk. *

Come learn about the exciting month of climate actions planned for September, and discuss how we can expand the networks of politically-active scientists, engineers, and all STEM workers and students.

The STEM community has been centrally involved in debates about climate change. As a new era of climate activism emerges, our community faces several urgent questions:

- What role do scientists and engineers have to play in advocating for a Green New Deal?
- How can we step up our collective actions and match the courage of Indigenous leaders, student climate strikers, youth activists from Sunrise, and other leaders?
- How can we bridge the divides between academia and many environmental justice communities?
- How can we better organize ourselves and convince our more hesitant colleagues to take political action?

AGENDA:
1) Introductions - 10 min
2) Watch 2 short GND videos - 15 min
3) Discuss videos & supplemental readings on STEM and the GND - 45 min
4) How to become a member of SftP NYC & our work - 20 min

SftP monthly chapter meetings are a great place to discuss issues at the intersection of science, politics, and social justice; to learn how to become a member of our group of radical scientists, engineers, educators, and beyond; and to get plugged into the organizing and publishing work that SFTP NYC is doing.
