Public Affairs Conference
The Global Freshwater Challenge: New Solutions for a Thirsty World
Wednesday, April 15 at 12pm, PSU Theater
Around the world, signs of water trouble abound. Rivers are running dry, lakes are shrinking and groundwater is being depleted. Climate change is altering the global water cycle. The question arises: can we meet the food, energy and water needs of our growing population, while at the same time sustaining the ecosystems that support our economies and the web of life on the planet? Dr. Sandra Postel will explain that the answer is yes, but will require a transformation in how we use, manage, and value freshwater.
Sandra Postel directs the independent Global Water Policy Project and lectures, writes and consults on global water issues. In 2010, she was appointed Freshwater Fellow of the National Geographic Society, where she serves as the Society’s lead water expert. Postel is co-creator of Change the Course, the national freshwater conservation and restoration campaign that is being pioneered by National Geographic and its partners and piloted in the Colorado River Basin.
Postel is the author of several acclaimed books, including the award-winning “Last Oasis,” which appears in eight languages and was the basis for a PBS documentary. She has authored more than 100 articles for popular and scholarly publications, from “Science and Natural History” to “Foreign Policy” and “Ecological Applications.” The recipient of several honorary degrees, Postel has also been named a Pew Scholar in Conservation and the Environment and one of the “Scientific American 50” for her contributions to water policy.
Previously, Postel served as visiting senior lecturer at Mount Holyoke College and as director of the college’s Center for the Environment. She has appeared in dozens of television and radio shows nationally and internationally, as well as in some half dozen films, including the BBC’s “Planet Earth” and Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The 11th Hour.”
This presentation sponsored by the College of Natural and Applied Sciences, Department of Biology, Department of Geography, Geology and Planning, and the Ozarks Environmental and Water Resources Institute.
How to Make a Difference in the Lives of Sex Trafficking Victims
Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30pm, PSU Theater
It is estimated that more than 100,000 children are being sold into sex-trafficking in the United States alone. Toshia Shaw, a survivor of sex trafficking, decided being an onlooker was not good enough and became a dedicated person in making a difference in one child’s life. Join Shaw, executive director of Purple W.I.N.G.S., as she shares insight and awareness of how you can make a difference by lending your voice to raise awareness, sending a Tweet or taking it one step further…by mentoring. This event sponsored by the Department of Theater and Dance and the Department of Media Journalism and Film
Toshia Shaw is a behavioral health expert and author who has coached women through drug addiction, sexual assault, abuse and other traumatic experiences that shape the way they view themselves and the world around them. She is the founder and executive director of Purple W.I.N.G.S., a 501 c (3) multicultural nonprofit organization whose acronym stands for Women Inspiring Noble Girls Successfully. In addition to her work helping young women in the Las Vegas, Nevada area, she is also founder of T3SL LLC, a business-consulting firm that serves non-profits, small healthcare organizations and the criminal justice system.
Having overcome her own personal encounters as a triumphant survivor of domestic violence and sex-trafficking, Shaw is able to understand and empower others in a very unique and personal way. As a life coach and mentor, she often calls upon her own life experiences in an effort to relate to and connect with the girls and women she serves. In 2006, she faced the heartbreaking reality of girls in her community being trafficked in staggering numbers. This was a turning point, and she felt compelled to start speaking up about the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking in Las Vegas, Nevada. She had become tired of standing by and watching girls being ignored, treated as if they were invisible. She decided it was time to give these ladies a voice and a choice.
Today, Shaw is a noted speaker and media commentator participating in segments such as Surviving Sin City on PBS, TEDx Fremont East Women, NAACP Education Forum, African American Cultural Association’s I Remember the Dream Discussion Panel and the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP), Unlocking the Power of Relationships.

McEwen produced the theatrically released feature films, “Another Happy Day,” “Bernie” (starring Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, Shirley MacLaine), and the Tribeca selected and award winning film, “Graceland” (New York Times Critic Pick). McEwen is the co-founder of Encameo, a media technology company based in New York, Los Angeles and Silicon Valley with an eye to launch on network television and film in early 2015.

Shatterer of Worlds, Presented by Bread & Puppet Theater
Thursday, April 16 at 7:30pm, Hammons Center West Court
Friday, April 17 at 7:30pm, Hammons Center West Court
Saturday, April 18 at 7:30pm, Hammons Center West Court
The Shatterer of Worlds: Chapel with naturalization services for applicants requesting citizenship in the shattered world, is a walkabout political performance, enveloping audience and performers alike. The performance references the moment when the first atomic bomb was dropped and Robert Oppenheimer, the chief architect of that bomb, recalled words from the Bhagavad Gita, the Hindu prayer epic: Life, the splendor of 1000 suns blazing all at once, resembling the exulted soul, is become Death, the shatterer of worlds.
Note: The April 16 performance is open to MSU students, faculty and staff only. Two additional performances on April 17 and 18 are open to the public.
Now in its 50th year, Bread and Puppet Theater, founded by Peter Schumann, stands as one of the nation’s oldest not-for-profit theatre companies. With its social themes and oversized “puppetry,” it is also one of the most recognizable troupes in the world. Garnering world-wide media attention during the Vietnam War, the company has become a mainstay in contemporary culture, featured in popular films such as “Across the Universe,” and serving as an inspiration for global theatre works such as “The Lion King.” Bread and Puppet’s utilization of large scale pageantry, live music and stunning visual art has contributed greatly to its global success and recognition.
Ferguson and Beyond: Race Relations in Modern America
Friday, April 17 at 12pm, PSU Theater
A recent article in The Telegraph (U.K.) was titled, “A Black President Couldn’t Stop the Ferguson Race Riots.” The article isolates a disconcerting dichotomy in American race relations, noting that beyond a gloss of progress lays a foundation still mired in intolerance, inequality and violence. The tragic events in Ferguson sparked important discussions regarding race. Yet, since the shooting of Michael Brown, troubling examples of racial tension have arisen in our communities and on college campuses. What is the current state of race relations in America? How may citizens build a more ethical, tolerant and stable foundation for American youth? Overflow for this event will be in the PSU Ballroom West.
President Clif Smart will moderate this session with presentations by actor Iké Amadi; Matt Marinec, confidential assistant to the director, US Office of Ethics; Yu-Hsien Sharon Wu, co-founder of US-China Education and Culture Center; and Angela Hollway-Payne, principal of Dexter Elementary School in Memphis, Tennessee.
