This November, some of the world’s preeminent strategists in environmental defense, social justice, and grassroots activism will come together to share their insights and speak toward ONE goal: crafting game-changing responses to address the converging crises we face.
Species extinction, racism, sexual warfare, deforestation, global warming, corruption -- all stem from the same root.
For too long environmentalism has hinged on conformity to capitalism and the status quo. For too long social justice work has capitulated to this profoundly abusive culture.
We may live on an EARTH AT RISK - but with this great challenge comes a GREAT OPPORTUNITY. This is your struggle, whether you acknowledge it or not. Will you sit on the sidelines as the world burns?
Join this global conversation - and know that lines have been drawn.
