This March MDOCS is hosting the Humanities Action Lab exhibit - Climates of Inequality. This collaborative exhibit showcases content contributed by schools around the country telling their own regional stories of environmental justice and includes work done by Prof. AJ Schneller’s (ES) class that focused on a story in Sheridan Hollow where an environmental justice community is working to fight the development of a power plant in their neighborhood. Join us for the opening and closing events on March 6 and 21. Details coming soon!
