Majora CarterThe Think Forum speaker series—formerly known as Town Hall of Cleveland—will continue Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. in Silver Hall of the Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center at the Temple – Tifereth Israel.

Majora Carter, an urban revitalization consultant, real estate developer and Peabody Award-winning broadcaster, will present the lecture, “Department of Hometown Security.”

Carter advises cities, foundations, universities and businesses around the world about green-infrastructure projects, as well job training and placement systems. A graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and Wesleyan University, she founded Sustainable South Bronx in 2001 with a mission to achieve environmental justice through economically sustainable projects. Named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow in 2005, Carter’s TEDTalk was one of the first six publically released videos to launch the groundbreaking website in 2006. Her savvy use of the news media has helped bring visibility to environmental injustices faced by poor communities.

Carter’s talk is presented in partnership with the Office for Sustainability at Case Western Reserve, with additional support from the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit at the university’s Weatherhead School of Management.

The event is free and open to the public. Guests can reserve tickets online at case.edu/events/thinkforum or by calling the Maltz Performing Arts Center box office at 216.368.6062. Paid parking is conveniently available near the Maltz Center (1855 Ansel Road).
