Dr Anthony Nocella is a professor at Fort Lewis College who reached sociology, criminology, gender & women’s studies, and peace & conflict studies.
Most recently he has been organizing rallies on and off campus focused on sexual assault, people with disabilities, and the Black Lives Matter Movement as well as environmental causes.
The Durango Herald, who has covered his events, has recently done a front cover story on his scholar activism.
The following is an excerpt from the article:
Amidst the dawn of a new presidential administration and the ongoing Dakota Access Pipeline issue, demonstrators, it seems, are a more frequent sight both nationally and in Durango.
To many, sign-wielding protesters are little more than nuisances, cliches and whiners. But Anthony Nocella, an assistant professor at Fort Lewis College, insists that it matters.
Nocella teaches sociology, criminology, gender and women’s studies, environmental studies, and peace and conflict studies, frequently instructing, literally, by demonstration. Last November, he led students to Standing Rock to join tribes across the nation in protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and to bring protesters warm clothing.
