As a result of Halloween festivities, the Environmental Action Club cut this week's meeting short, but listed the upcoming sponsored events this week, including the trip to join the protests in Washington, D.C., against the Keystone XL project.

Students will travel via bus to the protest on Sunday, Nov. 6. Though initially free, students who wish to attend must now sign up with club leaders and pay $20 for the round trip, a recent change the EAC made after switching bus companies. More information on the event can be found here.

Other EAC-sponsored events this week include the public lecture, "Media, Civic Engagement and Sustainability" by Josh Stearns at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Davis Auditorium. Stearns is the associate program director at Free Press and SaveTheNews, and will speak about the current state of the media in relation to civic engagement and sustainability.

The Mountain Top Removal Action Roadshow, a presentation by Dave Cooper, will take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3 in Emerson Hall. Cooper is a member of Mountain Justice, which is a direct action environmental group that works to fight against mountaintop removal in Appalachia.

The EAC meets at 9 p.m. on Mondays in Ladd 207.
