Thu, Sep 10, 2020 11:45 AM - Thu, Sep 10, 2020 2:30 PM @ Eli Lilly and Company Global Headquarters Lilly Corporate Center

Unlike its competitors Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and J&J, Eli Lilly has refused to ban the cruel and useless “forced swim test” on animals. Please join PETA and local activists to urge the company to make the compassionate decision! We will be having a demo outside Eli Lilly’s Headquarters in Indianapolis followed by chalking the neighborhood of the CEO of Eli Lilly, David Ricks.

The so-called “forced swim test” is a widely discredited experiment that’s as cruel as it is worthless. In this test, experimenters put mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, or gerbils in inescapable containers filled with water. The panicked animals try to escape by attempting to climb up the sides of the beakers or even diving underwater in search of an exit. They paddle furiously, desperately trying to keep their heads above water. Eventually, they’ll start to float. Initially, experimenters believed that the test could be used to screen new drugs for human depression, but the data show that it’s no more accurate than a coin toss.

Please learn more about this cruel experiment and take action here: https://support.peta.org/page/7704/action/1?locale=en-US

WHEN: Thursday, September 10

11:45-1:00pm Eli Lilly’s Headquarters
2:00-2:30 CEO David Ricks’ house

WHERE: (See facebook event for more event details)

CONTACT: Jonathan Horn

Note: We will be taking precautions to ensure safe social distancing during this action. All activists are asked to maintain a distance of 6 ft. from each other and wear a protective face mask.

Chalk and posters will be provided. Outreach events are a fun and effective way to help animals as well as meet local advocates, so before you go, check out PETA’s outreach tips [http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/tips_for_PETA_activists.pdf] and be sure to invite others.

Please dress sharp, as it helps our message come across much stronger! Please be prepared for the weather.

Sun, Jun 28, 2020 8:00 PM - Sun, Jun 28, 2020 9:30 PM @ https://havenyogaindy.com/events/2020/6/28/anti-racism-for-wellness-leaders

Regardless of your identities or job title, you know that anti-racism is a non-negotiable part of your wellness business going forward…even if you’re not yet entirely sure what that means.

But not all of us have the context, skills, and community support to do this fierce, long-term work without causing more harm in the process.

So how can wellness leaders like yoga teachers, studio owners, life coaches, meditation instructors, and healers do whatever they can to stop replicating white supremacy in their work and spaces?

How can we make wellness actively anti-racist, from the way we interact with students and employees to our policies and procedures to our offerings and programs?

This is where we can help!

We’re Charlie Redd – owner of Haven Yoga Studio, yoga teacher, and longtime activist – and Lauren Roberts – political coach, yoga teacher, and community organizer – and we’re offering Anti-Racism for Wellness Leaders, a 6-month virtual course for wellness pros who want to embody anti-racist leadership in their work and spaces.

We’re offering our combined two decades of experience facilitating social justice work in this way because we believe that wellness leaders are uniquely positioned to create deep, lasting change in their communities during this urgent moment for cultural and political revolution.

Here’s what you’ll get:
*Six monthly live virtual group sessions on different topics
*One individual coaching session with Charlie and Lauren
*Suggested readings and resources
*Virtual community forum (NOT another Facebook group!)
*Email support from Charlie and Lauren

In our six monthly group sessions, we’ll learn about…
*A systems framework for understanding white supremacy, racism, and how they show up in the wellness industry and its leadership,
*How we each uphold toxic systems that perpetuate harm against BIPOC, but in different ways depending on our identities and proximity to power and privilege,
*How to confront and dismantle white supremacy within ourselves – whether as a BIPOC who has internalized it or as a white person who has benefited from and been blind to it,
*Building strong, trusting relationships across different identities and backgrounds,
*Harm-reduction strategies as you implement anti-racist practices into your wellness business, offerings, and/or space, and
*Sustaining an anti-racist culture in your work as a wellness leader.

Below are the monthly session dates and times. In the application, we ask if you have scheduling conflicts because ideally we want students to attend each session, though we’d encourage you to apply anyway, even if you might have scheduling challenges.

June 28, 8:00pm – 9:30pm EST
July 26, 8:00pm – 9:30pm EST
August 23, 8:00pm – 9:30pm EST
September 27, 8:00pm – 9:30pm EST
October 25, 8:00pm – 9:30pm EST
November 15, 8:00pm – 10:00pm EST

Click the link to apply! We kick things off on 6/28.
https://havenyogaindy.com/events/2020/6/28/anti-racism-for-wellness-leaders
(Note: While anti-racism work is ultimately white people’s responsibility, we will be centering and affirming BIPOC’s experiences in this space. People of all identities are welcome to apply.)

Resilience and Possibility

The COVID-19 pandemic caught the world by surprise, and the disruption of our health, economic, and political systems will forever change the world. As the initial shock wears off, people everywhere are waking up to the reality that we must change the way society operates in order to bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world.

Join this Resilience and Possibility Conversation between Pachamama Alliance Co-founders Bill and Lynne Twist, and Dr. Mathis Wackernagel, co-creator of the Ecological Footprint and President of Global Footprint Network, to explore a future where all can thrive within the means of our one planet.

About the speaker

Mathis Wackernagel developed the Ecological Footprint concept during his Ph.D. in community and regional planning, and co-authored the book Our Ecological Footprint: Reducing Human Impact on the Earth. He founded the Global Footprint Network with the mission to help end ecological overshoot by making ecological limits central to decision-making, and has worked on sustainability with governments, corporations, and international NGOs on six continents.
