EcoFarm2021 Pre-Conference Event

The time has come for organic farmers to come together to protect the meaning of organic. Join many of the pioneering farmers of the organic movement as they discuss why the organic industry is in need of a course correction and what we must do to bring it back home to its roots. Gain a greater understanding of why many organic farmers are fighting to reclaim the word “Organic” from lobbyists and industrial agricultural corporations. Explore the connections between healthy soil, climate, and nutrition to shed light on why we need greater transparency in food labels and the importance of farmers to lead the way.

Cost: $35

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.

Wed, Jan 13, 2021 9:00 AM - Wed, Jan 13, 2021 10:30 AM @ https://events.wri.org/c/stories-to-watch-2021

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.

We can’t wait to see you at our annual fall fundraiser this year: a film screening of “2040” and an intimate discussion with Indiana experts! Join us on October 22nd to see director Damon Gameau’s ‘exercise in fact-based dreaming’, 2040.

The film takes a solutions-based approach to how we can, using the technology we already have, mitigate the enormous global issues we currently face. The main themes/solutions looked at in the film are around: empowerment of women and girls; marine regeneration; regenerative agriculture; renewable energy; and circular economy. It’s a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action.
We will also be hosting a pre-film introduction that includes a HIPL produced short film and music, and our post-movie regroup to discuss local climate solutions.

So plan to join in from the comfort of your home to enjoy this widely acclaimed and powerful family friendly film, and the before and after programs!

Registration for the film screening is FREE. Please consider donating $15 to cover the costs of the film and any additional contribution you can give. Gifts from our supporters enable us to continue our mission throughout the year.

So register today and plan a family night at the movies!

Just Transition NWI invites you to a virtual documentary screening of In the Water, a film by Beth Edwards of the Indiana Environmental Reporter about the issue of coal ash pollution in Indiana. The film spotlights the Town of Pines in Northwest Indiana (NWI), whose drinking water and soil were poisoned by coal ash due to negligence on the part of the local utility, NIPSCO. This screening is especially timely due to the threat of NIPSCO proposing to dig up and haul thousands of cubic yards of coal ash from their Michigan City and Bailly plants through NWI communities.

The film screening will lead into a Q&A and community discussion with the following panelists:

– Beth Edwards, Director of In the Water and writer and producer for the Indiana Environmental Reporter

– Cathi Murray, Resident of Town of Pines and founding member of P.I.N.E.S (People in Need of Environmental Safety)

– Lisa Evans, Senior Counsel with Earthjustice

– Michael Mack, Vice President of the Michigan City Council, Ward 3 Councilman and Council Liaison with the Michigan City Sustainability Commission

– Dr. Indra Frank, Environmental Health and Water Policy Director with the Hoosier Environmental Council

The public will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the panel. This film screening is free to the public and is not rated, but should be suitable for older children.
