FEATURING PENNIE OPAL PLANT – If this summer’s temperatures have been any indication it is that global warming is not just a theory, it is a fact. Communities around the US and world are endangered by terrible climate threats and yet our politicians especially at the federal level are doing nothing about it.

But a mass global set of actions to demand climate action and justice is gearing up in September in San Francisco and elsewhere. Many of those actions are being led by powerful and inspiring indigenous women like our guest today.
