Activism and Faith – Jay O’Hara

Living Like the World is Ending: Blocking Coal Ships and a Living Faith

Featuring Jay O’Hara, Quaker climate activist
Friday, March 13, Noon, Commons 226

In May 2013, Jay O’Hara and Ken Ward blockaded a shipment of 40,000 tons of coal to Brayton Point power station using a lobster boat. In this presentation and Q&A, O’Hara will discuss their action and its aftermath, including their arrest and trial. Bring your questions about direct action, faith-based activism, and environmental activism for the Q&A!
