Dear Community,

For nearly a year, I've put independent projects through GloWo on hold while I focus on my job as Creative Director of The Laura Flanders Show, a weekly public affairs podcast, web series, and TV show. This September, my first year's work is culminating in the launch of the show on PBS stations nationwide. Stewarding the transition from four TV stations in NYC to nearly 75% of US households has been an amazing process and huuugggeee learning experience. The time and attention this work takes means that I'll no longer be working on independent projects through GloWo.

My four years of working under the banner of the The Global Workshop took me around the world to work with badass activists, many of them Indigenous environmental guardians. These years also gave me the opportunity to learn from progressive Muslim leaders, organizers, and healthcare providers through projects in 2016 and 2018/19. During this time, my clients, collaborators, and I created two documentary shorts, a ton of climate change-related policy advocacy media for environmental lobbyists in California, a video that premiered at COP23, and a national network of Muslim-run free clinics.

I am so so grateful to the clients, collaborators, and mentors that made these steps in my career possible. We made media and built relationships that have made us stronger and more capable of dealing with the enormous social and environmental challenges we face nationally and globally today. Thank you for supporting this work and me!

To continue following my work, follow The Laura Flanders Show on FB and on YouTube. And look out for us on your local PBS station this fall.

Sending love to my comrades in Florida, Ladakh, Southeast Sulawesi, Bamako, Sacramento, Flores, Jogja, Delhi, Bihar, and across the US.
