Compassionate Resistance Campaign--November

All the proceeds of Saturdays at 1pm with Allie will go to www.honorearth.org.

Their mission is to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using music, the arts, the media, and Indigenous wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on the Earth and be a voice for those not heard. Honor the Earth is a Native-led organization, established by Winona LaDuke and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, in 1993 to address the two primary needs of the Native environmental movement: the need to break the geographic and political isolation of Native communities and the need to increase financial resources for organizing and change.

We re delighted to welcome Kenya Budd, our Equity and Racial Inclusion facilitator whom we have been working with privately for some time now, into a public forum from which the whole community can benefit.

We all have implicit biases - ways in which we think things about other people that are based on our own bias, not on reality --  As Daniel Kahneman has said, "We're blind to the obvious, and blind to our blindness" about our own thinking, which can be mistaken.  The key question is always whether we are willing to learn more deeply about ourselves and, importantly for our lives and livelihoods, ask: at what point do our implicit biases become another person's impediments to accessing wellness services?
