Earth At Risk 2014: Justice and Sustainability Conference, Nov. 22 – 23

From the Conference website: “This November, some of the world’s preeminent strategists in environmental defense, social justice,
Earth At Risk Logoand 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?”

Featuring four hugely important global activists: African-American author Alice Walker, Indian physicist-ecologist Dr. Vandana Shiva, journalist Chris Hedges and author/philosopher Derrick Jensen. This is not a conference to miss, if you can help it!
