  • The Cycle of Our Justice
    Marcie Rendon writes about her writing work at county jails. "If it gives even one woman the opportunity to glimpse herself as something more than an incarcerated woman — to see a future beyond the jail — it can be a stop gap against future incarceration."
  • Being a Doula to the Next Economy
    Winona LaDuke: "I want to be a doula to the next economy. It will take many of us to bring on the birth, but it is time. Time to re-matriate our world, our Mother Earth. The next economy needs to be restorative and regenerative. It needs to not poison people and land. No more “-cides” in the food and in the water. That stuff will kill you. It needs to be compassionate and maternal — looking out for relatives, whether they have hands, paws, roots, claws, or fins.
  • Roaring Into the Past

  • 2018 Changemaker: Eileen Hudon
