Healthy soil plays a vital role in enabling resilient agriculture that produces abundant, secure, healthy food for a growing population. High functioning soils prevent runoff, erosion, degradation of water and air quality, and more, and have a direct impact on our changing climate by sequestering large amounts of carbon. They may also help improve the nutrient density of our food. By ignoring the needs of the vital living ecosystems directly beneath our feet, we can expect to lose much of the world’s topsoil within a single generation and see a needless rise in the accumulation of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.

Join us for a special two-part online event series where we’ll explore why soil health matters, how it’s related to our worsening climate crisis, and what individuals and communities can do to protect it.

Just Futures and Justice Funders invite you to join our three-part webinar series on social justice investing. Wall Street and the 1% have built an investing infrastructure that allows the rich to get richer through extraction and theft. But a growing number of social movement actors are finding alternative ways, often rooted in cultural traditions of BIPOC communities, to leverage and grow community wealth and economic power through regenerative investing strategies. We call this social justice investing.

This webinar will provide an introduction to social justice investing, explain how it’s different from mainstream ESG investing strategies, and provide some insight into how one group is implementing it on the ground.

This session will be recorded. Auto-generated closed captioning in English will be available.

Thu, May 05, 2022 2:00 PM - Thu, May 05, 2022 3:30 PM @ https://info.nonprofitquarterly.org/closing-the-racial-wealth-gap

Many people speak these days of a racial reckoning. But a true reckoning requires a willingness to shake up the status quo. This year, both NPQ—in partnership with Prosperity Nowand Shelterforce each published multi-part article series on how to close the racial wealth gap. Here we bring writers from both series to address the question: What must be done?

This 90-minute in-depth webinar, jointly organized by NPQ and Shelterforce, brings together four field leaders to discuss central questions regarding economic justice, racial justice, and strategic approaches to closing the wealth gap. Our panelists are:

Gary Cunningham, CEO of Prosperity Now, a national racial and economic justice nonprofit headquartered in Washington, D.C. Prosperity Now is invested in transforming our economy to work for everyone.

Jeremie Greer, co-founder and co-executive director of Liberation in a Generation, an organization incubated by PolicyLink, which is building the power of people of color to totally transform the economy.

john a. powell, director of the Othering & Belonging Institute and professor of law, African American, and ethnic studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Anne Price, president of the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, which strives to shift power and agency in economic policy by centering those closest to the problems in developing solutions.

This webinar will explore:

  • What are the leading conventional approaches for addressing the racial wealth gap? Why do they fall short?
  • What are ways in which wealth continues to be extracted from communities of color, further deepening the racial wealth divide?
  • How do rising student and medical debt impact the racial wealth gap?
  • How does the tax system affect the racial wealth gap?
  • What is “targeted universalism”? How does it build on—and differ from—an equity approach?
  • What would a “targeted universalist” approach to addressing the racial wealth gap look like?
  • Does reducing the homeownership gap close the racial wealth gap? Why or why not?
  • What are we learning in the field—from community development leaders and others—of how to build wealth in low-income and BIPOC communities?
  • What is the role of reparations in addressing the racial wealth gap and setting the groundwork for a more just economy?

Whether you’re a nonprofit leader, board member, or engaged in community-based organizing, this webinar will provide you with real-life examples and lessons learned that can inform your work in your own community.

Register to learn how nonprofits and movement activists are advancing strategies to address the economic and social inequalities of our time!

The moderators for this webinar are NPQ senior editor of economic justice Steve Dubb and Shelterforce editor in chief Miriam Axel-Lute. Miriam has been an analyst of housing justice and community development issues for over 20 years. Steve has worked with cooperatives and nonprofits for over two decades and has been both a student and practitioner in the field of community economic development.

Wed, May 04, 2022 7:00 PM - Wed, May 04, 2022 8:00 PM @ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-tick-project-in-focus-tickets-321317307717

On May 4 at 7pm, explore results from The Tick Project, a six-year study that was the first to test if environmentally-safe interventions could reduce ticks and the diseases they carry at the neighborhood level. In this virtual event, project directors Felicia Keesing of Bard College and Rick Ostfeld of Cary Institute will review the study design, methods, results, and lessons learned along the way, with ample time for audience Q&A.

The Tick Project was conducted in Dutchess County, New York, home to some of the nation’s highest rates of Lyme disease. The study was designed to determine whether Met52 fungal spray and Tick Control System bait boxes, used separately or together in yards, could reduce tick numbers, tick encounters, and neighborhood risk of contracting Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. More than 2,380 people (and 849 pets) participated, representing 24 neighborhoods. Dozens of researchers monitored ticks on participating properties and households completed biweekly surveys about tick encounters.

After processing mountains of data, long-awaited results are in. TCS bait boxes were found to reduce the number of ticks in people’s yards by about half, while the Met52 fungal spray had little effect. Neither control resulted in fewer tick encounters by people or a reduction in Lyme and other tick-borne diseases in treated neighborhoods. Incidence of tick-borne diseases in pets was lower by about half on properties that were treated with either the boxes, the spray, or both.

The Tick Project set a gold standard for methods in the fields of disease ecology, vector control and integrated tick management. The study is a reminder of the importance of personal protection and vigilance in the fight against tick-borne disease.

——————

The Tick Project was conducted in partnership with Bard College, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York State Department of Health, and Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health. The research was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation and the support of a network of generous donors.

On Apr 28 @ 11am, join us for a free, virtual Scientific Seminar, Insights into Forest Ecology from Drone Remote Sensing.

Forests are globally important for their role in cycles of carbon, water, and nutrients. However, knowledge of forest structure and function has been limited by the availability of historical measurements and data. Traditional field methods are often time-consuming, limited in spatial extent, and inaccurate for measuring large trees. Traditional remote sensing methods are often limited in spatial and/or temporal resolution, precluding the study of organismal ecological processes. In this seminar, Dr. KC Cushman will highlight how emerging methods from drone remote sensing can connect the scales of traditional field and remote sensing studies, and provide new insights into forest ecology.

Since 2008, the Indy Winter Farmers Market has been the longest-running and only winter market in downtown Indianapolis that connects farmers to community members. The goal of the winter market is to help bridge the gap between the community, local farmers, and food producers.

The Indy Winter Farmers Market returns for its 13th market season at The AMP Marketplace located in the 16 Tech Innovation District at 1220 Waterway Blvd.! The market runs every Saturday from Nov. 6, 2021, through April 30, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In an effort to increase food access we offer a Triple-Match SNAP program, which allows shoppers to turn $20 into $60 of fresh food and produce. It’s a simple idea that everyone deserves access to fresh foods!

At the market, you will find some of Indiana’s best local produce farmers, artisan food producers, including sustainably raised meats and dairy products, unique baked goods, preserved and fermented foods, and more! Bring family and friends and enjoy live music, good food, and let your kids play in the kids area!

On Apr 7 @ 11am, join us for a free, virtual Scientific Seminar, The Role of Aquatic Food Webs in Contaminant Cycling, Transport, & Toxicity.

Traditionally under-considered, the influence that biota exert over environmental contaminant behavior is emerging as an important driver of contaminant persistence and legacy impact. This influence involves processes that span all levels of biological organization and manifests as a complex set of interactions between food webs and contaminants that can attenuate efforts to reduce contaminant burdens. It is becoming clear that these interactions will need to be accounted for in environmental policy making and management, which presents an opportunity for collaboration at the interface of basic and applied research.

In this presentation, Dr. Jess Brandt will explore the influence of biota on contaminant dynamics in aquatic ecosystems through an overview of two recent projects about 1) the spatial and temporal patterns of selenium cycling in the Gunnison River, Colorado, and 2) spawning migrations of Pacific salmon as biological pumps of nutrient and contaminant subsidies to North America. The talk will also highlight the questions that motivate the research program in the Brandt Lab at the University of Connecticut.
