The Path to a Livable Future Book Launch
Date: Wednesday, November 10, 2021
City Lights and YES! Magazine present the book launch for The Path to a Livable Future, by Stan Cox, published by City Lights Books.
Stan Cox is joined by YES! Magazine’s Racial Justice Editor Sonali Kolhatkar.
2020 was a year defined by crisis. For decades, scientists have been sounding the alarm about the urgency of addressing climate change, but it took COVID-19 to demonstrate clearly that the future of human life on Earth is interconnected and at risk. While the virus quickly spread across the globe, extreme weather events compounded the suffering and economic catastrophe. In the U.S., public demonstrations of outrage over the murder of George Floyd expanded to include a growing awareness of the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on communities of color. In cities around the world, people took to the streets to protest racial inequity in all of its forms.
In The Path to a Livable Future, Stan Cox makes plain the connections between the multiple crises facing us today, and provides an inspired vision for how to resolve them. With a deeply informed, clear to-do list, Cox shows us how we can work together to address the climate emergency, white supremacy, and our vulnerability to future pandemics all at once. Our future depends on it.
