Dr. Jill Stein, activist and third party presidential candidate extraordinaire, will speak at Smith College on Wednesday, April 19.
The talk will take place from 7 to 9 at the Weinstein Auditorium and is free and open to the public.
Stein was the Green-Rainbow Party presidential candidate in the 2012 and 2016 elections and has been, throughout her life, a notable and accomplished environmental activist. The public is welcome to come to hear her speak and to ask questions about her experiences as an environmental activist, presidential candidate and physician.
Stein’s visit is sponsored by the Smith College Green Team, a student-led coalition dedicated to fostering sustainability at Smith by educating and supporting the campus community in efficient use of finite natural resources, attaining the greatest possible efficiencies and preventing pollution. The Green Team seeks to transform the college’s practices in many areas of Smith’s operations, and works to engage the Smith community in environmental issues beyond the bounds of Smith’s campus.
