Leader’s Roundtable: Crimes Against Nature? (Hybrid)

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bring your lunch and join Leader Dr. Nori Rost and members for an engaging round-table discussion on the issues of the day and recommended readings.

That phrase used to inappropriately reference homosexuality, but now there is a much more appropriate definition of crimes against nature: Eco-Cide. Should destroying the earth be a crime? What punishment should be meted out to those who are convicted. As we celebrate Earth Month, we’ll be taking a look at issues dealing with climate change over the next three weeks. This is the first offering.
