Roxanne will be joined by William “Bill” Means (Oglala Lakota), co-founder and board member of IITC and veteran of Wounded Knee; and Kris Road Traveler Longoria, another veteran of the occupation.
Opening blessing by Alcatraz veteran, Kris Longoria (Caddo Nation and Cheyenne Arapaho) (URBANREZLIFE).

Saturday, November 22 & Sunday November 23
N 22, Saturday & N 23 Sunday, 9:30am, Earth At Risk 2014 Conference
Palace of Fine Arts
3301 Lyon St
San Francisco, CA 94123
Some of the world’s preeminent strategists in environmental defense, social justice, and grassroots activism will come together to share their insights and speak toward ONE goal: crafting game-changing responses to address the converging crises we face. Species extinction, racism, sexual warfare, deforestation, global warming, corruption — all stem from the same root.
For too long environmentalism has hinged on conformity to capitalism and the status quo. For too long social justice work has capitulated to this profoundly abusive culture. We may live on an EARTH AT RISK – but with this great challenge comes a GREAT OPPORTUNITY. This is your struggle, whether you acknowledge it or not. Will you sit on the sidelines as the world burns?”
Featuring four hugely important global activists: African-American author Alice Walker, Indian physicist-ecologist Dr. Vandana Shiva, journalist Chris Hedges and author/philosopher Derrick Jensen. This is not a conference to miss, if you can help it!
