6:30pm [6:30pm] 'Greening' Your Portfolio
Description:
ColorBrightonGreen.org Winter Film/Speaker Series presents: "Greening" Your Portfolio “Green Investing” to most people still means divestment — selling stock in companies that produce fossil fuels, especially coal, the worst for climate change. However, there are now more options to put money into companies making products or services that reduce climate change such as, solar- or wind-power producers, companies that do carbon trading or energy-efficiency management, and manufacturers of emission-cutting devices and systems. Join us for a conversation on Green Investing with a panel of professionals from local financial institutions. Participants will learn how to invest successfully while still supporting companies with ‘green’ business practices, such as clean energy, reducing climate change, fossil fuel-free and other sustainable efforts. Additionally, participants will gain a better understanding of climate change risks and opportunities, potential investment upsides or downsides, and the increasing variety of green-focused offerings.

7:00pm [7:00pm] Fascism: Fake News or Fact?
Description:
RIT’s College of Liberal Arts hosts a McKenzie Forum on Inclusion and Diversity: Fascism: Fake News or Fact? On Wednesday, April 26 from 7 - 9 p.m. Stan McKenzie Commons (Bldg 6-1251) Forum facilitators: Sara Armengot, Elisabetta Sanino D’Amanda, Vincent Serravallo Participants will focus on the core elements of fascism past and present. Specifically, we will focus on Mussolini’s “invention” of Fascism in Italy, on the manifestations of fascism in Europe and the Americas since then, and on the contemporary fascist movements in Europe, the US, and globally. Emphasis will be on the control of the press and “othering”: the process of casting a group, an individual or an object into the role of the ‘other’ and establishing authoritative identity through opposition to and, frequently, vilification of the Others. This open forum will include Liberal Arts faculty who will offer all participants the chance to think critically about fascist tenets and to reflect on the contentious claims being made in social media about the current US political state. In celebration of Italy’s national holiday of liberation from Germany, the College of Liberal Arts is providing Italian food and dessert for this event. This forum is free and open to the public.
