A Green New Deal, and Beyond: Facing Ecological Crises

  • School of Social Work Room 2.106 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We face multiple, cascading ecological crises that require dramatic changes in public policy and everyday life. The Green New Deal proposals have been criticized for being too radical, but what if they are not radical enough? Robert Jensen will offer a framework for understanding today’s debates over environmental issues.

Jensen, recently retired from teaching in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas, is the author of The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men and Plain Radical: Living, Loving, and Learning to Leave the Planet Gracefully.

DACA Policy Briefing

  • LBJ School of Public Affairs - SRH 3.122 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In 2012 President Obama issued an executive memorandum that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. President Trump rescinded DACA in 2017 and over the past two years it has been litigated in the courts. Given that Texas has the second-highest number of DACA recipients, the implications of this policy are particularly relevant here as well as in the broader national landscape. The future of the DACA program will soon be determined as the Supreme Court recently announced it would review the federal court cases challenging its termination. This policy briefing will provide an in-depth review and discussion of the state of DACA from a legal perspective. The panel will then zoom out and consider the role that advocates and DACA recipients themselves have played in maintaining the policy.
