"BLISS"

In order to bring balance to our communities it is vital to find a balance within. Acceptance for all is first accomplished through acceptance of yourself.

"THE RESCUE"

DISCUSSION: CONSERVATION OF LAND & PEOPLE

9

Though we have spent centuries cultivating the world we live in today, we must respect that there are untouched lands and waters are meant to remain untouched. They belonged to cultures who existed long before us. These National Parks and Monuments are not ours to drill, to build pipelines through, to urbanize, but ours to protect and to conserve.

"home-LESS"

Discussion: HOMELESSNESS

Every human being has the right to a home, to a place not only of safety and shelter, but peace and happiness. Somewhere that is their own. The growth of the homeless population is progressing at such a magnitude that it is now a crisis and needs to be addressed as such.

"WITHSTANDING THE BLOW OF THE PASSING STORM"

Discussion: CLIMATE CHANGE

13

As mistreatment of our environment continues, the harm inflicted on our climate is detrimental and the harm our inflicted climate has on earth is, day by day, increasingly irreversible. We only have one planet, and we can claim that the harm is minimal, but that doesn’t change the truth.

"YOU CAN IGNORE SCIENCE, BUT SCIENCE WON’T IGNORE YOU"

Discussion: PESTICIDES

Pesticides are the root of toxins in our crops. They poison not only humans, but the animals that consume them. They are an unnatural source in a natural circle of health and diet.

"WHAT IS YOUR COLOR, WHAT IS YOUR TRUTH?"

Discussion: RACIALISM 

15

We are told that no matter our skin color, no matter our heritage, our ancestry, no matter where we were born, we are all equals – yet it is those very things that are the basis of unequal 

treatment.

It is the time for women, it is the dawn of a new era of feminism. We, as a society, have been given the chance to inspire our daughters, our mothers, our grandmothers, our aunts and our nieces, every woman we have ever known or will know, to get up, stand strong, and empower our society with a new and necessary point of view. Every woman and man has the opportunity to fight for and be the voice of a new generation.
