Wed
Wed, Mar 24, 2021 10:00 AM - Wed, Mar 24, 2021 11:45 AM @ https://www.postcarbon.org/events/overcoming-political-polarization/

In this webinar, we’ll examine political polarization and how to overcome it. We recognize that the “us vs. them” posture in American political life is making it hard to achieve the cooperation needed to address our most pressing social and environmental problems. We are hoping to explore two drivers of polarization: (1) the neurological and psychological characteristics of individuals that promote tribalism, and (2) the cultural constructs and social institutions that reinforce personal tendencies toward “us vs. them” thinking. Given our brains and the world we inhabit, how do we go about dismantling (or at least chipping away at) polarization so that people can act more collaboratively?

Join us for this free conversation on March 24th with Kim Doell, John Wood, Jr., and Lee Drutman about how to bridge seemingly impossible divides to work collaboratively on social and environmental issues.

A minimum donation of $25 will give you access to our live, online event as well as a recording of the event as soon as it’s available.

Can’t make it to the live event? Donate a minimum of $25 and we’ll send you a link to the recording that you can access at any time immediately following the event.

Speaker Bios

This event is free to attend, but we hope you’ll consider a donation of $25 or more, which will also give you access to a recording of the event as soon as it’s available. Funds raised from the event will support Post Carbon Institute’s efforts to inspire, educate, and support many more people to respond with urgency and boldness to the defining challenges of our time.

Thu, Mar 18, 2021 3:00 PM - Thu, Mar 18, 2021 4:30 PM @ https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mZu1wvKTSWSZO8RrkB60RA

In the last few years, two Indigenous-led movements have been boldly leading a way forward for tribal communities and climate justice by reclaiming sovereignty rooted in ancestral knowledge. Both of these movements radically shift the colonial system embedded in the DNA of the United States (and Canada), and how we relate to the land, water and spirit of Turtle Island. With this webinar we will share the power of the Rights of Nature and LandBack movements from those leading the way, and explore the potential for collaboration or connection between them.

To register:
We have opened registration to 500 people live on Zoom with Q&A and special opportunities to get involved. Use this link to register today: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mZu1wvKTSWSZO8RrkB60RA

Quotes and Bios from panelists:
“For the Indigenous people of Turtle Island and around the world, the Rights of Nature has been a way to reclaim our sovereignty and exercise our traditional responsibilities to our Mother, the Earth. In passing Rights of Nature into tribal law, the Ponca also reclaimed our original treaty boundaries, which the US government has whittled away with every broken promise and Treaty they’ve ever signed with tribal nations.” -Casey Camp Horinek, Ponca tribe of Oklahoma, Ponca Environmental Ambassador and Movement Rights founding Board chair. BIO: https://www.movementrights.org/board/

“When we say ‘Land Back’ we aren’t asking for just the ground, or for a piece of paper that allows us to tear up and pollute the earth. We want the system that is land to be alive so that it can perpetuate itself, and perpetuate us as an extension of itself. That’s what we want back: our place in keeping land alive and spiritually connected.” -Krystal Two Bulls, Northern Cheyenne/Oglala Lakota, NDN Collective LandBack Director. BIO: https://ndncollective.org/people/krystal-two-bulls/

“They decided, we’ll just go over to Standing Rock, those Indians ain’t going to do nothing. Well, we did. We have never ceded this land. If Dakota Access Pipeline can go through and claim eminent domain on landowners and Native peoples on their own land, then we as sovereign nations can then declare eminent domain on our own aboriginal homeland,” – Joye Braun Wanbli Wiyan Ka’win or Eagle Feather Woman, Cheyenne River Sioux, Community Organizer, Indigenous Environmental Network. BIO:https://www.facebook.com/Indigenousrisingmedia/posts/tomorrow-join-iens-joye-braun-for-the-be-the-revolution-summit-online-webinar-fo/3226055450744592/

“The Ohlone people never lost their connection to this land. The land gives us everything that we need in order to survive. That’s how people lived for thousands of years on our land and other Indigenous people’s land. You work with the land so that it can continue to provide, but that you honor that relationship by not taking too much. Through a voluntary land tax and donations from land owners, this organization is working to create an alternative land base and cultural site for Indigenous people in California’s East Bay.” -Corrina Gould, chair and spokesperson for the Confederated Villages of Lisjan Ohlone.

BIO: Corrina was born and raised in Oakland, CA, the village of Huichin. A mother of three and grandmother of four, Corrina is the Co-Founder and Lead Organizer for Indian People Organizing for Change, a small Native run organization that works on Indigenous people issues and sponsored annual Shellmound Peace Walks from 2005 to 2009. These walks brought about education and awareness of the desecration of sacred sites in the greater Bay Area. As a tribal leader, she has continued to fight for the protection of the Shellmounds, uphold her nation’s inherent right to sovereignty, and stand in solidarity with her Indigenous relatives to protect our sacred waters, mountains, and lands all over the world. Her life’s work has led to the creation of Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, a women-led organization within the urban setting of her ancestral territory of the Bay Area. Sogorea Te’ Land Trust works to return Indigenous land to Indigenous people. Based on an understanding that Oakland is home to many peoples that have been oppressed and marginalized, Sogorea Te works to create a thriving community that lives in relation to the land. Through the practices of rematriation, cultural revitalization, and land restoration, the Land Trust calls on native and non-native peoples to heal and transform legacies of colonization, genocide, and to do the work our ancestors and future generations are calling us to do.

“We’re the original stewards of the land. Now we’re returned.” -Tom Little Bear Nason, chairman of the Esselen tribe of Monterey county, California.

Bio: Tom Little Bear is the Tribal Chairman of the Esselen Tribe of Monterey County and the Tribe has recently received 1200 acres off acred lands located in their aboriginal homelands of Big Sur in Monterey County. The land is crucial to the tribe because the Tribe has been landless for over 250 years since the colonization of Spanish Missionaries who ripped all of the Esselen Tribal members from their ancient homelands and villages in 1770s. Leaving thee tribe without a place to call their own. This land holds a sacred mountain called “Pico Blanco” or “Pixchi” in Esselen. This is the center of the Esselen’s universe and holds the creation story for the tribe. Coyote, Humming Bird and the Eagle created the Esselen World as they have known it for countless generations. Little Bear is an elder and has been a land and water protector since he was chosen at the age of 8 to become the leader and to carry on the tribes long tradition of protecting sacred lands of the Native Americans. Little Bear has defended dozens of government projects to dam up rivers and to level off mountain tops for telescopes and towers. Most recently the tribe under his leadership worked to remove the largest Dam in California state history on the Carmel River in Monterey County. This was a monumental task that has spawned numerous other dam removal projects on tribal lands in California, Oregon and Washington States. He is currently working on further protections of sacred lands, forests wildlife and rivers within their tribal territory and defending Mother Earth.

Wed, Mar 10, 2021 7:00 PM - Wed, Mar 10, 2021 8:30 PM @ https://www.postcarbon.org/events/power-forum/

The focus of this forum will be on Montgomery County, Maryland, but it is applicable to any large county or region.  As Montgomery County concludes the drafting of its Climate Action Plan after nearly a year and a half of work with citizen advisors, consultants, and its own staff, we are faced with the daunting goals we have set: 80% reduction in our carbon emissions by 2027, and 100% by 2035.  How will we get there?  What are the limits of renewable energy?  Are we addressing the root causes?

Climate change is part of a larger crisis, often labeled “overshoot,” and solar and wind power by themselves won’t extricate us from that dilemma.  The ability of renewables to fully replace fossil fuels has been oversold. If that is the case, what are our alternatives?

Beginning in 2003 with The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies, one of the first full-length analyses of peak oil, Richard Heinberg has written numerous books on topics examining the implications of our modern society’s dependence on fossil fuels, and what may come next as the availability of cheap fossil fuels begins to decline. In addition to his forthcoming book, his 2016 book Our Renewable Future: Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy will be pertinent to the evening’s discussion on March 10.

Please register to join us for an evening of provocative analysis and discussion:

https://forms.organise.earth/index.php?r=survey/index&sid=369134&lang=en

This online gathering aims to explore cultural difference, Western culture, colonisation, modern societies as well as Indigenous worldviews, perspectives and philosophies from around the world, including Australia, Africa, New Zealand and the Americas.

Practical decolonial actions that flow from these perspectives will also be considered along with potential emergent decolonial futures. Formats will include presentations, interactive exercises in small breakout groups, and general questions and discussion.

This gathering will be hosted by XR Global Support Trainings and Regen 101 Working Group and will be facilitated by Dr. Yin Paradies, an Aboriginal-Asian-Anglo Australian of the Wakaya people from the Gulf of Carpentaria. He is a Professor of Race Relations at Deakin University, where he conducts research on racism and anti-racism as well as teaching and researching Indigenous knowledges and decoloniality. Yin is a climate and ecological activist who is committed to understanding and interrupting the devastating impacts of modern societies.

He seeks meaningful mutuality of becoming and embodied kinship with all life through transformed ways of knowing, being, and doing that are grounded in wisdom, humility, respect, and generosity. He is a current Moora Moora resident, having moved to the mountain in 2020 to be in community, cultivate a closer connection to Country and engage in an ethos of down-shifted collective sufficiency, voluntary simplicity, frugality, direct democracy, and radical localisation.

While this is a “free” event we do invite participants to engage in the gift economy to support a local community climate change food growing group.

Thu, Jan 21, 2021 2:00 PM - Thu, Jan 21, 2021 3:30 PM @ https://info.nonprofitquarterly.org/health-racial-economic

NPQ’s latest webinar in our Remaking the Economy series looks at healthcare, the largest single sector of the US economy. Famously, the US pays more for healthcare than any other nation, 17.7% of the economy in 2019, yet its quality falls far short of other nations. Increasingly, healthcare’s shortfalls are recognized. This year, the American Medical Association formally recognized racism as a public health threat. And age-adjusted COVID-19 mortality rates for Black, Latinx, and Native Americans are twice that of whites. How can healthcare be retooled to address these disparities and promote better health?

Addressing these issues are our three panelists:

Ben Palmquist is program director of health care and economic democracy for Partners for Dignity and Rights, a New York City-based nonprofit that advocates for a new social contract where everyone’s human needs are met.

Al Richmond is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and is executive director of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, a member-based nonprofit that promotes health equity and social justice through partnerships between communities and academic institutions.

Yolandra Toya, MD is a physician and community pediatrician, and a citizen of the Jicarilla Apache nation. In her practice, Dr. Toya is currently providing medical care to residents of both Native and non-Native communities in New Mexico.

This webinar will explore:

  • What is the current status of the healthcare system in the US, and how does that differ according to race, class, and location?
  • What does good community-based health research look like? How does poorly conducted health research in the past continue to cause problems in the present?
  • This year the AMA and many US cities have declared that racism is a matter of public health. But what is required to convert words of concern into action?
  • Is COVID-19 teaching us new things about healthcare in the US, or is it mostly confirming what was already known? If it is teaching us new things, what are they?
  • What are the structural causes of healthcare injustice in the United States and what can be done to address them?
  • What principles guide the US healthcare system, as it currently operates? What should those principles be?
  • How do we get from “here” to “there”? In other words, what kind of transition policies are required?
  • What role can nonprofits and philanthropy play in supporting economic and racial justice in the healthcare sector?

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.

The moderator for this webinar is NPQ Economic Justice Program Director Steve Dubb. 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. You can send your questions to [email protected] to have them answered during the web event.

 

*The recording and slides of this webinar will be available on the NPQ website 2-3 days after the live event.

2020 was nothing like any of us could have imagined. Instead of a big year for climate action and progress on other sustainability issues, the world was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic fallout. As we look ahead, there are signs of hope, especially with the emergence of a vaccine, but the world continues to grapple with major challenges.

Join WRI on January 13, as we look to the big moments, trends and people that will shape the world in 2021. For the 18th annual Stories to Watch, WRI President and CEO Andrew Steer will share insights why 2021 could set a foundation for a cleaner, sustainable and more equitable future.

Will the world recover from COVID-19? How will the incoming Biden administration influence the direction, and which other leaders will emerge? What technologies will breakthrough? And, will we learn the right lessons from the year like no other?

You won’t want to miss Stories to Watch 2021 as we look at what will happen on climate, the environment, human development and the economy in the year ahead.

Join Hoosier Action Leaders from across the state to hear their stories and launch our 2021 Legislative Session work!

It is critical that Hoosier politicians pass a budget which prioritizes the safety, health, and future of our children over the profit margins of our wealthiest corporations. Now more than ever, Hoosiers across rural, urban, and small-town Indiana need our elected officials to heed the voices of their constituents rather than lobbyists.

Making Sense of 2020 &
Creating a Powerful 2021

with Lynne Twist

A two-part free webinar series to bring meaning and vision to the emerging new future.

PART 1: December 29, 10:00am PT
PART 2: January 5, 10:00am PT

Revealing the hidden gifts of an unprecedented year.

We’ve had a year that none of us expected, none of us wanted, and none of us imagined could ever happen. How do we make sense of 2020? How do we find the silver lining? How do we accept, grieve, and integrate the losses, the suffering, the hurt, as well as lift up what we were forced– or taught to learn about ourselves, about our relationships with one another, our relationship with future generations, and our relationship with the natural world? How have those lessons, started to shape the way we live, think, see the future and go forward?

We, at the Soul Money Institute, invite you to join us, Sara Vetter and myself, for two free webinars to first– make sense of 2020, find the hidden meanings, the deep truths, as well as grieve, let go and release this extraordinary year. And second— to do that in a way that we create, launch and initiate a brilliant 2021 in our lives, our families, our work, and our world.

We invite you to join us to start 2021 at cause rather than effect, even though we don’t know what will unfold, even as life continues to be unpredictable. We invite you to transform your experience of 2020 into the year that tested, challenged and strengthened us. We invite you to own that because of 2020, perhaps we have become stronger and wiser than ever before and that we are more equipped than we have ever been to powerfully generate the life we want.

– Lynne Twist & Sara Vetter

Making Sense of 2020 &
Creating a Powerful 2021

with Lynne Twist

A two-part free webinar series to bring meaning and vision to the emerging new future.

PART 1: December 29, 10:00am PT
PART 2: January 5, 10:00am PT

Revealing the hidden gifts of an unprecedented year.

We’ve had a year that none of us expected, none of us wanted, and none of us imagined could ever happen. How do we make sense of 2020? How do we find the silver lining? How do we accept, grieve, and integrate the losses, the suffering, the hurt, as well as lift up what we were forced– or taught to learn about ourselves, about our relationships with one another, our relationship with future generations, and our relationship with the natural world? How have those lessons, started to shape the way we live, think, see the future and go forward?

We, at the Soul Money Institute, invite you to join us, Sara Vetter and myself, for two free webinars to first– make sense of 2020, find the hidden meanings, the deep truths, as well as grieve, let go and release this extraordinary year. And second— to do that in a way that we create, launch and initiate a brilliant 2021 in our lives, our families, our work, and our world.

We invite you to join us to start 2021 at cause rather than effect, even though we don’t know what will unfold, even as life continues to be unpredictable. We invite you to transform your experience of 2020 into the year that tested, challenged and strengthened us. We invite you to own that because of 2020, perhaps we have become stronger and wiser than ever before and that we are more equipped than we have ever been to powerfully generate the life we want.

You heard about our new mission.

Now see our plans in action.

In April 2019, we announced our new mission to mobilize people, ideas and investments to make this a community where all individuals have equitable opportunity to reach their full potential—no matter race, place or identity.

You’re invited to join us on Wednesday, Oct. 28, for an update on our commitment to dismantling systemic racism, hear from leaders who are joining us in this work, and learn more about how you can be a part of our plan of action for a more equitable community.

To ensure safety through social distancing and to be accessible to all, this event will be broadcast live from the Madam Walker Legacy Center and shared on an interactive digital platform.
Details on how to connect to the digital event will be shared with registered guest.
