Event Description

Tim DeChristopher, the subject of the documentary film Bidder 70, will speak about civil disobedience and the issue of climate change.

Tims actions and 21-month imprisonment earned him a national and international media presence, which he has used as a platform to spread the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for bold, confrontational action in order to create a just and healthy world. Tim used his prosecution as an opportunity to organize the climate justice organization Peaceful Uprising in Salt Lake City, and most recently, the Climate Disobedience Center.  He continues the work to defend a livable future.
