The Social Justice Center of Marin proudly presents our May Day Spring Get–Together Dinner on Sunday, April 28 at the West End Cafe in San Rafael. Please come join us for a delicious and stimulating evening of fine Middle Eastern food, topped off by our speaker, Biology Professor Joe Mueller, from College of Marin. We'll begin the evening with a social hour, a no-host bar, and musicians Ricardo Moncrief and Stephenie Hendricks tickling our musical ear. Buffet dinner will be served from 6:15 - 7:15pm. Professor Mueller will speak from 7:15 – 8:30pm.

Professor Mueller, using his holistic approach to science, will discuss the underlieing systemic problems that we all face in regards to environmental justice, and the best ways to go about changing them. “Most importantly, a national discussion needs to develop concerning the myth that growth in GDP is responsible for our happiness,” says Professor Mueller.

Professor Mueller is the recipient of the 2008 Terwilliger Environmental Award and has developed and directed the Natural History Program at College of Marin for 24 years. Mueller's 15 different courses focus on his interests in ecology, marine biology, ornithology and environmental science. An animal lover by nature, Mueller tends an animal farm where he loves spending time with an assortment of critters ranging from llamas to lizards. He often brings social activism activities into the classroom, encouraging students to get involved in environmental issues. “I emphasize the need to understand the reasons we have become so disconnected from the very planetary ecosystems we depend on,” he says. We are honored to have Professor Mueller at our dinner.
