Dear Dennis and Bob,
My name is Corey Katz and I teach medical and environmental ethics at Georgian Court University in Lakewood, NJ. I write to see if the Jersey Shore Sierra Club might be interested in coming on campus to educate and engage with our students. We hope to help our students recognize the major environmental issues at stake in the 2020 election.
Georgian Court is a small college founded by the Sisters of Mercy Catholic order in 1908. While the school is now secular, the values and concerns of the Sisters of Mercy deeply shape the school's mission and vision. One of the Sisters of Mercy's key concerns is with environmental issues. Our school is organizing a Critical Concerns Week around the theme of Earth and Oceans that will run March 23-26. It includes days and evenings full of artistic, informational and spiritual activities and events on environmental issues. From 12pm-1pm each day, we will have tables set up for different groups in our cafe and that might be a great opportunity to engage with students. It would be great to get students connected up with the movement Sunrise is building.
That said, if those days/times/format do not work for you, I hope we might look for another opportunity.
