Event

West Coast Ecofeminist Conference: Women, Climate Change and Animals
Speakers: Dr. Miriam R. Dexter (UCLA professor, author and women's ancient history expert), Charlotte Cressey (ecofeminist, activist, yoga instructor), Dr. Jeannette Kiel (ecofeminist scholar and artist), Karen Yuen (NASA climate scientist), Sharon Lungo (Ruckus Society Dir. and activist), Jaya Bhumitra (Director at Animal Equality), Milina Jovanovic (scholar, author, ecofeminist and activist) and Isabella La Rocca (photographer, artist, educator and ecofeminist).

Urgency

The violence and degradation of animals, women and the natural world are a painful reality of our modern world, and swift action must be taken to turn the tide toward harmony.  Lives are at stake.

Inspire

This conference is intended to breathe new life into our advocacy, activism, and sense of purpose.   Our focus is to unite our voices and actions to be inspired, reinvigorated, and armed with understanding our common mission to end the exploitation of our beautiful planet.  Let's vision a better world together.

Addressing Root Causes

The patriarchal, dominator view of animals, women, and nature as things to be used instead of beings worthy of autonomy and respect is the root cause of the violence inflicted upon them by society.   We are all brought up immersed in this worldview, so we must learn to identify and uproot it in order to address the myriad manifestations of this dysfunction, which currently show up in the ecological crises, male violence against women, and needless killing of animals.  

Related Solutions

By understanding the interconnections between the way we, as humans, relate to nature, animals, and women, we can resolve the problems of domination and the 'might makes right mentality.'   We will be looking at the herstory and interconnections between women, animals and the environmental justice movements and how these root issues are connected.

Deep Understanding

Our goal is to address the cultural beliefs, systems, and habits of humanity as a whole - not to blame individuals or point the finger.  

Connect

This gathering of way-showers, visionaries, peace-makers, trouble-makers, and yay-sayers will have you laughing, connecting, chatting, speaking your mind, telling your truth, and feeling heard.  

Spark Action

We want to spark activism.   Activism comes in many different forms.  Our lineup of speakers come from a diversity of approaches to activism - grassroots tree-sitters, organizers, professor-activists, scholars, and direct action protestors.  We are standing at the ready to ignite, inspire, and light the fire of passionate, sacred activism in the hearts of all who join us at the beautiful Museum of Goddess History in Orange County.   You do not need to be an activist to attend, but we're guessing that by the end of it, you'll be pumped up to take a stand for justice and truth in your town.
