What a powerful convergence of events we are having this weekend: Today Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery and a national demand for racial justice in the United States. Tomorrow the Poor Peoples Campaign’s moral march on Washington. And Sunday the solstice, marking a cosmic shift.
If ever a cosmic shift was needed, this is the moment.
Here are some visionary articles and resources promoting such a shift in our hearts, our behaviors, and our national policies:
Excerpt: Canada and South Africa both used similar commissions to grapple with their histories of racism and genocide. The U.S. could benefit from following suit.
Excerpt: “We are calling out for systemic change for an entirely different governance and legal framework that recognizes that Earth’s living systems are not the enslaved property of humans. Just as it is wrong for men to consider women property or one race to consider another race as property, it is wrong for humans to see nature as property; a concept that came from white Eurocentric settlers called dominion.”
Excerpt: “Hear the wisdom shared by a delegation of elders who come with directions from Mother Earth to help us walk through these times of great chaos and change”
With hope and commitment to BEING the change,
