    We Are Relatives, the Struggle for Land and Water

    We Are Relatives, the Struggle for Land and Water

    Despite the current climate change scenario, gas pipeline projects continue to move forward in the US. Enbridge’s Line 3 “replacement” pipeline in Anishinaabe territory is the latest development that has triggered a new struggle against fossil fuel dependency. The Indigenous-led camp resistance in Northern Minnesota is committed to protecting and honoring the land and water.
    In this episode, we interview Water Protector, Amber Morning Star Byars, who has been at the frontlines of Line 3 and the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Amber shares her Indigenous cosmovision and how remembering our ancestral ways of being will protect the Earth from climate chaos and save us from our own extinction.

    How do you shift your way of giving?

    How do you shift your way of giving?

    What would you do if you inherited 25 million dollars at age 21? This episode is about Sam Jacobs and a network of donors who use lessons and inspiration from social movements to reclaim a new narrative around philanthropy. Traditionally funders hold onto power, hoard money in private foundations and donor-advised funds and control giving based on the funders own views and priorities. Because of Occupy Wall Street and the Movement for Black Lives, a new narrative about wealth and philanthropy is emerging. Radical philanthropists are changing the face of philanthropy and redistributing their wealth. They believe that ‘those closest to the pain, need to be closest to the power!’*
     
    As a member of Resource Generation and Solidiare - Sam Jacobs, National Organizer for Donor Relations at The Right to the City Alliance, focuses his philanthropic giving on the re-distribution of his personal inheritance and getting others to join this path. Sam intentionally re-allocates his funds to prioritize movement organizations that are spearheading initiatives that protect our communities and the planet.
     
    Sam not only prioritizes funding social movements but puts those on the frontlines in control of the dollars. Why are folks in the 1% joining this shift? Listen to Episode 3!

    From Dante's Inferno to Gordon Plaza

    Listen to Angela Kinlaw from the New Orleans People’s Assembly FULL INTERVIEW and the Residents of Gordon Plaza on “From Dante’s Inferno to Gordon Plaza.”Following the dream of breaking the cycle of generational wealth, this Black working-class community of first-time homebuyers discovered that the City of New Orleans built the houses over a toxic landfill and never remediated the soil. The residents have contended all kinds of health issues and have the second-highest sustained rates of cancer in the entire state of Louisiana. For over 40 years, the community has been in the struggle against environmental racism. The organized residents, along with solidarity groups, demand a fully funded relocation NOW! It is urgent in the face of the global pandemic, and the only way to treat the land and the people with dignity is to allow the healing process to begin.>>>SUBSCRIBE to our podcast to get more stories on social movements, communities in resistance, and learn from culture organizers and freedom fighters.
