    A leading intellectual, sought-after public speaker and activist, Klein will be speaking about her recent New York Times bestselling book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate (2014). The climate crisis is real and to address it Klein argues that corporate power needs to be reined in, local economies rebuilt, and democracy reclaimed. Klein inspires us to use climate change as an opportunity to reinvigorate democracy and join people’s movements across the globe united against fossil fuels and advancing renewable energy. 

    Author of celebrated international bestselling books including No Logo (1999) and The Shock Doctrine (2007), Ms. Klein is also an award-winning journalist and accomplished filmmaker (with her partner, Avi Lewis). More recently, Ms. Klein has advised the Vatican and Pope Francis on climate change and launched the Leap Manifesto during the Toronto International Film Festival debut of the film for This Changes Everything.

    Clayton Thomas-Muller will provide greetings and introduce Naomi Klein. Thomas-Muller is an activist for Indigenous self-determination and environmental justice from Mathais Colomb Cree Nation (Pukatawagan) in Northern Manitoba. Thomas-Muller works with 350.org, a global grassroots movement to address the climate crisis. Klein is a member of the board of directors of 350.org.

    A portion of the proceeds from this event will be given to the Grassroots Indigenous Water Defence Treaty 3 Energy East Action Camp.
