Pick of the Day

7 pm: Aftermath: Fast Fashion and Textile Waste on Zoom
Dr. Julia DeVoy will trace the current state of textile waste in the United States, its global public health impacts, and associated issues of environmental injustice. Guided by the perspectives of Matilda Lartey, an artisan and environmental activist in Ghana and in dialogue with the audience, she will explore solutions to textile waste and its environmental health effects, including what changes individuals can make to reduce their environmental impact and more importantly the state, national, and international policies that are needed to regulate discarded textiles and contribute to systemic change in the fashion industry.
