We are at a choice point for humanity. As social and ecological crises escalate globally, it is clear that the dominant cultural worldview, informed by colonization, patriarchy, capitalism, and racism is displaying a relationship with Nature and each other that is devastatingly unjust and out of balance.
To live in a healthy and equitable world, we must fundamentally change how we respect and interact with the Earth and one another. To change the present and future, it is imperative to change the narrative and amplify worldviews and stories of solutions that transform the dominant worldview from an extractivist, colonial paradigm of exploit and extract to a thriving, globally-conscious one of respect and restore.
At this event, movement leaders and change-makers will weave together stories, worldviews, and experiences of restoration and justice that demonstrate the world we know is possible and needed.
We knew in our bones this time was coming. And now we must act in solidarity more than ever, as we continue building a powerful movement founded on principles of justice, love, and a fierce dedication to our planet and our communities.
This event is both a fundraiser for Sogorea Te’ Land Trust and the launch of the book by Osprey Orielle Lake, The Story is in Our Bones: How Worldviews and Climate Justice Can Remake a World in Crisis. All book sales at this event will be donated to Sogorea Te’ Land Trust to support the powerful work of Corrina Gould and her leadership in the urban Indigenous women-led land trust based in the San Francisco Bay Area that facilitates the return of Indigenous land to Indigenous people. There will be a program with speakers followed by abundant hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and a book signing. All are welcome!
