All eyes needed! We are now 6 days into the violent raids in unceded Wet’suwet’en territories in Northern BC, Canada to push through a gas pipeline.

RCMP officers removed Indigenous matriarchs from their lands as they held prayers for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and chainsawed through a “Reconciliation” gate to allow Coastal GasLink pipeline bulldozers through.

Thousands gathered on the National Mall today to rally for climate justice and listen to Pope Francis' historic speech to Congress. When it comes to climate action, world leaders should #FollowFrancis and reach a strong climate agreement in Paris later this year. #ActInParis

Every dollar of federal funds spent on family planning results in $7 of savings to the tune of over 13 billion per year. #Economics #PlannedParenthood

Here's the bottom line: Everyone benefits when society respects women to control their own bodies and plan their own families.

Planned Parenthood is under relentless attack and it's only going to get worse over the coming weeks. It's up to all of us to fight back.—Robert Reich

Staying Human in a Time of Climate Change: New Author on Science, Grief, and Hope

"Climate change is not an enemy to be vanquished; it is a phenomenon deeply tied to our daily lived existence. It is part of the conversation our mixed up, beautiful, contrary, and imaginative people must have about who we are as a people and where we want to go. I am optimistic about peoples’ better selves, and I think right now is an optimistic, hopeful time where we can be bold together."--M Jackson in YES! Magazine

For geographer and author M Jackson, knowing climate science isn’t enough. We need to get our hearts involved too.

We utilize goats at the lab in order to keep our grasses short and reduce fire hazards. In this video the goats are being herded (wait for dog at end) to the tree laden hill just below our Blackberry Gate.

ACT NOW: Show your support for Universal Voter Registration

If everyone voted and could easily vote, what a different USA! Support Universal Vote Registration!

If UVR was enacted and implemented nationally, more than 55 million people would become newly-registered voters. More importantly, they would have a say in our democracy and be able to make their voices heard at the ballot box.

Share 16 Translations of I Am Malala's "One Child, One Teacher, One Book, One Pen Can Change the World"....

In April 2015, we asked Malala's supporters from around the world to translate Malala's "One pen, one teacher, one book can change the world" quote. Translations in more than 100 languages were made, and we chose a few to turn into graphics. http://on.fb.me/1CCPxds

Please SHARE the graphic in your native language on your Facebook wall and help spread Malala's message around the world.

See a typo or a mistake in the translation? Let us know in a comment and we will change it!

It is possible.
