iPhone : we live the struggles some write about -our life gives academics careers- they have big opinions about our work &critiques & don’t know their place in movements- we always rather build than fight, but a just Alignment means taking risks & being transparent #dontgetcomfortable

iPhone : The increasing climate crisis is going to test relationships & reveal who real allies are...this divide will weaken our ability to collectively address the biggest challenge of our life & already masks are coming off. #jemezprinciples #DontGetComfortable

Twitter Web Client : US quickly shifting to fascism-there are #'s being written on arms of brown babies on US Border & more than 15K children in #InternmentCamps & a 7 yr old dead from neglect- this is not about immigration- its about racism- imagine this happening to 15K blond children- you can't

iPhone : Principles of Environmental Justice & the #JemezPrinciples have been important in guiding CJA's work. Visit bit.ly/2UKiAhi for #JustTransition principles consolidated & synthesized from #CJAmembers and allies, built off the deep work and discussions. #JTPrinciples

Twitter Web Client : people who run to the front w/o the frontline are extractive - not unlike those who got us to this point - the jemez principles were left in tatters under their well heeled eco-shoes- a belief in justice would have made ppl pause & ask whose missing? they took us back to pre-2014 twitter.com/HighTechAztec/…

iPhone : In 1996, When my son was small, one of the things we did together was follow the Journey of the Monarch Butterflies- this am reading about a 97% Decline in Monarch Butterflies 😔 portside.org/2018-12-08/97-…

iPhone : Today we took to the streets of Katowice, Poland for the climate march during #COP24. We mobilized to continue the pressure from Sol2Sol – lifting up the messages #OurFutureWillNotBeTraded and fighting for the real solutions of a locally driven #JustTransition.

Twitter Web Client : If you want to address climate change & believe in justice-support, dont supplant the frontline & follow the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organizing- bottom line is that if you dont build #justrelationships or engage in #selftransformation & think you can speak for us-we fail
