environmental groups we've worked with . . . or ones you have! Send info to sandy@emmasrevolution and we'll put it on the list.

  • Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light, supporting congregations of all faiths from across the DC area to save energy, go green, and respond to climate change. We love the Interfaith Power & Light movement! Now in 29 statues, find one in your area here!
  • Chesapeake Climate Action Network. Founded by activist and author, Mike Tidwell, whose book, Bayou Farwell predicted the flooding of New Orleans years before Katrina hit. We wrote Kilimanjaro for a 2002 CCAN demonstration in DC.
  • Coal River Mountain Watch: We met these folks at a conference in West Viriginia called "Iraq and Appalachia: Connecting the Dots" about the parallels between the occupation and bombing of the mountains and the people of the mountains and the occupation and bombing of iraq. "The mission of Coal River Mountain Watch is to stop the destruction of our communities and environment by mountaintop removal mining, to improve the quality of life in our area and to help rebuild sustainable communities."
  • Save the Berkeley Live Oak Grove. In March '08, environmental activist Redwood Mary took us to the grove of 100 year old trees that is threatened by the University expansion. The scene was like a prison, not a university, with rows of 20 foot fencing surrounding the groves, guards walking the perimeter, the noise and smell of generators and harsh floodlights that are kept on 24 hours a day to try to wear down the treesitters.
  • Earthrights International We love the folks at ERI! We wrote Silent No Longer for ERI and their work for human rights and environmental justice around the word, including their landmark lawsuit victory against US oil corporation, Unocal, on behalf of villagers in Burma. The ERI co-founders are currently living in Thailand and are updating regularly about how you can help with relief efforts after Cyclone Nargis.
  • Women's Earth Alliance. Founded by Melinda Kramer, WEA's mission is to unite "women environmental advocates around the world, providing the connections, resources and training they need to foster a thriving planet."
  • The Woolman Semester. We wrote I Will Stand for this high school program in the Sierra Nevada that teaches peace, justice & environmentalism through hands-on learning and living.
  • more to come!
