How bad is plastic pollution, really?
And what can we do about it?

Join System Change Not Climate Change for a webinar with journalists Alex Hartzog and Maura Stephens, who recently wrote a series of articles for SCNCC on the problem. They’ll elaborate on their findings and discuss ways we can combat this intensifying problem, which scientists say is every bit as much of a threat to our future as climate change. System Change Not Climate Change member David Klein will moderate the presentation and field questions.

Register here for the Zoom so you can join in the conversation. If you’re unable to connect via Zoom, we’ll also be streaming live on Facebook and will archive the webinar on our YouTube channel..

About Our Presenters

Alex Hartzog (he/him) was the SCNCC journalism intern this summer and concentrated on reporting and writing the series on plastic pollution that informs this webinar. He’ll graduate from Ithaca College in New York State this December with a degree in journalism and minors in linguistics and education studies. He’s also working and podcasting long-form stories about labor issues for WICB-FM. Conversant in Japanese, he’ll be looking for a job in the new year and is open to offers. Maura Stephens (she/xe/ella) is an independent journalist and an antiracism, environmental, labor, and peace activist — or jactivist — as well as a theatre artist, educator, creative writer, and editor. A lifetime sustainability advocate and anticapitalist, for many years she ran an organic farm in central New York. Maura has written hundreds of articles and white papers and taught on subjects ranging from climate change to the invasion of Iraq to vermiculture — subjects that are connected in one way or many. A cofounder of the Coalition to Protect New York, FrackbustersNY, and other grassroots organizations, she’s a current member of the System Change Not Climate Change coordinating committee and the National Writers Union.

What is SCNCC?

System Change Not Climate Change is a network of ecosocialists who believe capitalism is incompatible with prospects for a decent life for future generations on planet Earth. We are based principally in the United States and Canada but our perspective is internationalist and anti-imperialist.

Want to collaborate?

SCNCC needs you if you want to become a part of our editorial/writing crew. The imperative of building an ecosocialist movement is now more urgent than ever. r34.
