Water Crisis in the West: Thinking Like a Watershed

4 May 2014

Mark your calenders for the third lecture from the series, Water Crisis in the West: Thinking Like a Watershed! Please join us on April 24th, at the KiMo Theatre (downtown Albuquerque) at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The topic is "Rural Perspectives: Farmers and Ranchers". Panelists will present perspectives of traditional ranchers and the role of Holistic Range Management in overcoming problems of over-grazing wrought by ranchers transplanted to the arid Southwest from the verdant East of earlier generations. They will introduce the growing likelihood of scarcity in both surface- and ground-water in New Mexico and the American Southwest. This scarcity is already occurring due to global warming, climate instability, drought, and over-extraction. They will also address restoration ecology as a culture of practice shared by Native American, Hispano and Anglo rural residents of New Mexico and beyond. Panelists include: rancher Sid Goodloe from Carrizozo; rancher Stanley Crawford from Cimarron; and Steve Harris, Director of Rio Grande Restoration.

This lecture is FREE and open to the public.

For the full line up, please see the attached link!

The next lectures from the Albuquerque International Association!

3 May 2014

On April 16, 2014 from 5:30 ? 8:00 p.m. join Dr. Susan Tiano for Borderline Slavery: Mexico, the United States, and the Human Trade. Each year, thousands of people are trafficked within and across our borders to serve as sex slaves or un-free labor in U.S. homes, fields, and factories. Many enter via our southern border with Mexico, after having been trafficked within or across Mexico from other parts of the Americas and beyond. Despite evidence that this trend is accelerating, it often goes undetected because human trafficking is so antithetical to our cultural values and collective image of what we stand for as U.S. Americans. But understand it we must, because human trafficking is flourishing in the globalization era.

This is part of the dinner lecture series and will serve New Mexican Cuisine.

On May 2, 2014 from 3:00 ? 5:00 p.m. join, Dr. Martha Burk for Paths to Leadership in the 21st Century. Dr. Burk will give the final talk of the series, synthesizing themes from previous speakers as well as her own experience conducting training workshops for NGOs, the U.S. Department of State, UNESCO, and universities around the world. The talk will explore the progress of women in the U.S. as compared to other countries, and factors that have allowed women in other parts of the world to reach a critical mass in leadership where American women have not.
