I believe that within our communities we can create peace through true compassion for the land and each other.
Projects I Support[edit | edit source]
Redwood Curtain CopWatch, based in the north coast of California, is part of a larger movement of self organized CopWatch groups throughout the US. Our local efforts, seek to intervene in the drastic rise of the presence, militarization,and violence of the police, and build support networks based on, self-determination, caring, and concrete needs.
SLEWS — Student and Landowner Education and Watershed Stewardship — engages high school students in habitat restoration projects that enhance classroom learning, develop leadership skills and result in real habitat restoration.
Generation FIVE’s mission is to end the sexual abuse of children within five generations.
Through survivor leadership, community organizing, and public action, generation FIVE works to interrupt and mend the intergenerational impact of child sexual abuse on individuals, families, and communities.
We integrate child sexual abuse prevention into social movements and community organizing targeting family violence, economic oppression, and gender, age-based and cultural discrimination, rather than continuing to perpetuate the isolation of the issue.
It is our belief that meaningful community response is the key to effective prevention.
Critical Resistance seeks to build an international movement to end the Prison Industrial Complex by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. We believe that basic necessities such as food, shelter, and freedom are what really make our communities secure. As such, our work is part of global struggles against inequality and powerlessness. The success of the movement requires that it reflect communities most affected by the PIC. Because we seek to abolish the PIC, we cannot support any work that extends its life or scope.
