Peace & Justice Conversations: Climate & Militarism

April 24, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join 350 NH Co-Directors Lisa & Emma for an Earth Day conversation on the existential threat climate change poses to humanity, how it connects to militarism, and how the peace and climate justice movements can work together to shape a just, safe, and sustainable future.

Emma (she/her) graduated from College of the Atlantic in 2015 with a degree in Human Ecology. Following school, Emma spent her free time volunteering for environmental organizations while working as a video editor for small businesses. After the 2016 election, Emma made the decision to become a community organizer because she could not imagine putting her efforts anywhere else. What started with a personal testimony at a city hall meeting, grew to participating in the biggest non violent direct action in New Hampshire since the 70s two years later. When she’s not working Emma enjoys kickboxing, listening to podcasts, and exploring the New Hampshire wilderness.
Lisa Demaine (she/her) is a long time active New Hampshire resident who attended the University of New Hampshire where she began advocating for the school to divest from fossil fuel extraction and became a leader in the movement. Later she joined the efforts of overturning the US Supreme Court decision on Citizens United vs Federal Election Commission and having presidential candidates agree to transparent campaign funding. During her schooling she also represented the Student Environmental Action Coalition as Business Manager and served as a core volunteer with Trash 2 Treasure. After college Lisa was an organizer with the League of Conservation Voters NH, Campus Organizing Director with NextGen America New Hampshire, consultant to Friends of the Earth Action and Field Coordinator with Rights & Democracy NH. Lisa has met over fifteen presidential candidates while pushing their climate policy to bring a livable future. She also served the 350 NH Action Board for three years prior to joining staff at 350 NH and was a participant in the 2019 nonviolent direct action to close the Merrimack Generating Station. In her time away from organizing Lisa dabbles in karaoke, listening to podcasts and visiting beaches.
About NHPA’s bi-weekly Zoom Peace & Justice Conversation Series: 2020’s upheavals brought us to a new moment of reckoning and possibility. How do we want to live in the world? What do we value? How can we make the changes we’ve been yearning for? NH Peace Action has been engaged in working for change for decades. We’d like to bring you into these conversations about issues and options for the future.  There is no charge to attend, but your contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated.
