  • My Life as a Peace Activist
    Long-time peace activist Sue Ann Martinson: "How complicated it is, this peace work. It is feminist, too, addressing related issues. We advocate for refugees, immigrants, and to prevent children in cages. We work against poverty, institutional racism, and police brutality. We work on behalf of gun control, a sustainable economy, and to stop climate chaos. We act to end violence against women in all its forms, and oppose militarism in all its guises."
  • The Plant-Based Revolution
    Green Guide: “Eating meat is so inefficient,” Michelle Courtright says, listing the factors: “The energy use that goes into raising cattle. The land and water required for crops to feed the animals before you kill them. The methane alone from those animals is 26 times more powerful than the CO2 of all vehicles combined.”
     
  • Intentional Dying

  • Broken System: The Crisis of Elder Abuse in Minnesota
    Act Now: Elder abuse complaints have increased from 4,000 in 2010 to nearly 23,000 in 2017. Minnesota is the only state that does not license assisted-living facilities, which makes it difficult for the state to enforce standards of care. Assisted living licensure is one of the changes Elder Voice Family Advocates is pushing for in the Minnesota legislature this session.

  • Why Green Spaces Are White
