ECA-Oregon Meets Tomorrow!
ECA-Oregon's monthly meeting is tomorrow, Thursday, May 12, via Zoom from 7:00-8:30pm
We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Tom Kearns, emeritus professor of philosophy at Seattle College, and two students, Hailey and Joelle, as our guest presenters. They will speak with us about Youth Climate Courts and Elder Climate Courts for people over 60, which you can read about here and here.

Tom's work is focused on bringing human-rights norms to bear on environmental issues, especially on the climate crisis. He is the founder and director of the Environment and Human Rights Advisory and was a co-organizer of the Permanent Peoples' Tribunal Session on Human Rights, Fracking and Climate Change in 2018.

Tom recently authored the book Youth Climate Courts: How You Can Host a Human Rights Trial for People and Planet, which was published last fall by Routledge. Among his many other publications are Environmentally Induced Illnesses: Ethics, Risk Assessment and Human Rights and Bearing Witness: The Human Rights Case Against Fracking and Climate Change with Kathleen Dean Moore.
