A 7-DAY VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE
August 29th – September 4th, 2022
Taproot Earth invites you to a riveting 7-day virtual experience featuring the voices of frontline leaders advancing solutions to the climate, economic, and political crises of our times.
This journey is grounded in our commitment to Black liberation, Indigenous leadership, and honoring of frontline solutions. Beginning with a sacred remembrance of the impacts of Hurricanes Katrina and Ida, this event will feature conversations and reflections that show the collective power of frontline communities to rise up and meet the moment we are in, so we can all live, rest and thrive in the places that we love.
AUGUST 29TH – REMEMBER
Born of climate disasters and sustained by the frontlines, Taproot remembers and honors the strength of those most directly impacted by climate change.
AUGUST 30TH – RECKON
We reckon with how practices of extraction, disinvestment, and scarcity create the climate reality we are in and learn how we move toward solutions rooted in restoration, abundance, and love.
Marsha Jackson and Veronica Coptis
AUGUST 31TH – RECLAIM
We reclaim our connection to each other and the planet through our relationships with land, water, and energy so we can build a way forward to a collective future.
Former Principal Chief Thomas Dardar and Bette Billiot
SEPTEMBER 1ST – REPAIR + RESOURCE
We repair the harms that extractive economies inflict on our communities. We move resources rooted in reparation and mutuality to those who need it the most.
Alison Corwin, Ashleigh Gardere, and Flozell Daniels
SEPTEMBER 2ND – RESTORE
We reimagine how we can advance a more equitable and just democracy that restores our relationships to one another and the planet.
Denise Fairchild and Anthony Giancatarino
SEPTEMBER 3RD – RISE
Rise with us as we build power, community, and movement to reimagine our future.
Miya Yoshitani and Stephanie Guilloud
SEPTEMBER 4TH – REST
We rest to honor pauses in our work and movements. Rest is resistance to a system that continues to extract. Rest reimagines our relationship to our labor. Rest allows us to connect with our own humanity and our place on this planet. What can we learn when we slow down?
