Please RSVP to get the Zoom meeting link emailed to you.
UHeights is excited to bring you a wonderful new program for teens, with which we hope to create a space for them to connect with themselves as well as each other.
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:
Our facilitator for this program, TIPS for Teens is Anika Tara Rao. Anika will be starting 10th grade this Fall. She enjoys singing, dancing, cooking and hanging out with friends. Anika was inspired by her mom Dr. Anu Taranath to create safe spaces for talking about sometimes uncomfortable topics. She loves leadership and is very excited and thankful to be able to connect with you all!
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
TIPS is a book written by Dr. Anu's UW students during their study abroad program in India, encouraging us to see ourselves and our surroundings anew via thought-provoking letters to Things, Ideas, People and Self (TIPS).
Each week, Anika will introduce you to new guest speakers, who will share their insights with you and answer any questions you might have. You will spend some time writing letters using the TIPS model, and then share what you've written with the group.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Our speaker for this session is Bhavna Shamsundar. Bhavna is committed to a less toxic world, particularly for communities that bear more than their fair share of the toxic chemicals we extract, burn, turn into products, use, and dispose of. She is an environmental justice researcher and teaches and does research at Occidental College in Los Angeles in the Urban and Environmental Policy Department.
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
One of the issues Bhavna works passionately on is chemical exposures through consumer products, and in particular beauty products. Girls and women (and men) are exposed to a low level of array of chemicals, linked with potential health disparities; and the types of information (i.e. economic, public health, etc) used by US immigrant communities when they decide the types of products to buy and use. This will be the topic Bhavna will be discussing with the group in this session - "The Environmental Injustice of Beauty".
