The right to access abortion is under an unprecedented attack. This is the time to take action.

IF YOU WON’T, WE WILL: YOUTH ACTION ON CLIMATE

A global surge in youth climate action is reverberating from the streets through the highest levels of government, but is it enough to influence the decisions of industry and fossil fuel interests? Will this new generation of activists be able to resonate with a presidential administration that barely acknowledges climate change?

Join us with student activists Isha Clarke and Sarah Goody; Julia Olson, executive director at Our Children's Trust and chief legal counsel for plaintiffs in Juliana v. U.S.; Ben Wessel, youth vote director at NextGen America; and Morissa Zuckerman, Sunrise Movement coordinator (Bay Area chapter), for a conversation on the future of climate activism.

INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP: DRIVING CHANGE IN FOOD AND AGRICULTURE

  • 110 The Embarcadero San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We face some unprecedented challenges today related to how we grow, produce, distribute and consume food. Changing climatic conditions, population growth and decades of unsustainable growing practices are leading to growing consumer demand for higher quality provenance and production practices and healthier food options. Entrepreneurs are at the forefront of this movement to design a food system that is focused on the health of people and planet. Join Presidio Graduate School for a conversation led by Renske Lynde, CEO of Food System 6, a Bay Area based non-profit organization that supports mission-driven entrepreneurs who are developing innovative solutions to some of our greatest food system challenges. Renske will be joined in conversation with Dan Kurzrock, co-founder and chief grain officer of ReGrained; Andrew Falcon, CEO of Full Cycle Bioplastics; and Christine Su, CEO of PastureMap. Together they will discuss the ways in which their innovative solutions are remaking the food system as we know it. Come prepared to be inspired by these entrepreneurs and to learn how you too can become part of the good food revolution.

The White Devils’ Daughters: The Women Who Fought Slavery in San Francisco

With an investigative historian’s sharp eye, Siler tells the story of both the abolitionists who challenged the corrosive anti-Chinese prejudices of the time and the young women who dared to flee their fate. She relates how the women who ran the Cameron House defied contemporary convention by physically rescuing children from the brothels where they worked or by snatching them off ships as they were being smuggled in–and how they helped bring the exploiters to justice. This is a remarkable chapter in an overlooked part of San Francisco history, told with sympathy and vigor.

STANDING ROCK, CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE GREEN NEW DEAL

In 2015, representatives of 193 nations gathered in Paris, agreed that global climate change is underway and that our use of fossil fuels is a primary cause and set goals to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. President Trump ignored these agreements; overturned environmental protection standards; ordered the commencement of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone Pipeline; and opened national parks, Indian reservations, and coastal protected areas to the extraction of oil, coal, and natural gas. The dramatic opposition at Standing Rock by the Lakota people, other Native Americans and environmentalists inspired many to call for a Green New Deal. Sheehan, known for his public advocacy on the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, the Karen Silkwood Case, the American Sanctuary movement case, and the Iran–Contra scandal will address this pivotal moment in history.

JIM SCIUTTO: THE SHADOW WAR AGAINST AMERICA

What does a country do when it realizes it cannot win an outright war against the United States? It turns to new subversive, clandestine types of modern warfare. This, argues CNN chief national security expert Jim Sciutto, is exactly what China and Russia have been successfully doing—winning a new kind of war that the United States has barely realized it is currently fighting. 

Sciutto’s new book, The Shadow War: Inside Russia’s and China’s Secret Operations to Defeat America, is filled with a dizzying amount of on-the-ground reporting. From Ukraine to the South China Sea, from the belly of a submarine under the Arctic to the highest levels of America’s Space Command, Sciutto’s experience both as a reporter and as a diplomat give him unprecedented access and a uniquely informed perspective. His words of caution (and sometimes alarm) point to the areas in which Russia and China have successfully undermined America’s reputation and credibility. Join us for a conversation with someone reporting from the front lines of modern shadow warfare.

THE LAND OF DREAMS AND DROUGHT

Rolling hills, fertile soil: John Steinbeck’s California contrasts a Central Valley that “shouts with grass” during wet years and “puts a terror in the valley” in dry ones. Now, 70 years and four droughts later, California’s cyclical water shortages continue to disrupt a robust agricultural economy—one that produces up to two thirds of the country’s fruit, vegetables and nuts year-round.

In his new book The Dreamt Land: Chasing Water and Dust Across California, author Mark Arax explores the tumultuous history and reality behind the myth of the Golden State. Can a decades-old distribution system meet the water needs of the future? Will redirecting rivers, drilling deeper wells and building higher dams quench California’s demand for water? What happens when the next record-breaking drought hits?

Join us with author Mark Arax, water and communications expert Faith Kearns, and Los Angeles Times reporter Diana Marcum for a conversation about living the California dream in a drought-prone state.

HOW PUBLIC POLICY BECAME WAR

FDR's New Deal is widely recognized as a turning point in American history, but David Davenport and Gordon Lloyd go even further, calling it “America’s French Revolution.” Refashioning American government and public policy in ways that have grown to epic proportions today, Roosevelt’s decisions reset the balance of power away from Congress and the states toward a strong executive branch. They also shifted the federal government away from the founders’ vision of deliberation and moderation toward war and action. Having learned that a sense of crisis is helpful in moving forward a domestic agenda, post New Deal presidents have seized on the language of war to extend their power dramatically. They have declared war on everything from poverty and drugs to crime and terror. Exploring the consequences of these ill-defined (and never-ending) wars, Davenport calls for a reexamination of this destructive approach to governance and a return to more deliberative and moderate methods.

THE PENALTY FOR SUCCESS: MY FATHER WAS LYNCHED IN ALABAMA (San Francisco)

Monday Night Philosophy investigates the painful reality that succeeding in business is not always an advantage in America. Josephine Bolling McCall's father, Elmore Bolling, was a successful entrepreneur in Alabama. He was lynched outside Montgomery in 1947 when the author was five years old. In her book, The Penalty for Success, McCall tells the story of her father’s murder and the impact it had—and still has—on her family and her community. After years of research, including interviews with relatives and elderly Lowndes County residents, McCall found answers to many troubling questions. Her journey of discovery presents a revealing narrative of a time, a place and a people, challenging us to rethink the reality of life for both blacks and whites in the rural South during Jim Crow. Elmore Bolling was murdered because he was too prosperous to be a black man in Alabama. Even though he was not hanged, mutilated or burned in front of a crowd of people, he was “lynched” by being shot six times in the front of his body with a pistol and once in the back with a shotgun, reinforcing the legacy of racial terror that has yet to be adequately addressed in America.

Join WECAN International on APRIL 3rd for 'Women For Forests' - the first session in our series of 2019 Online Education & Advocacy Trainings For Women For Climate Justice!

ABOUT: Women from across the world are exposing the intertwined root causes of forest destruction, gender injustice, and economic domination. They are rising up to protect vital forests ecosystems from deforestation, agribusiness, and a host of other threats. Through their work, they are protecting irreplaceable biodiversity and the sources of community life and livelihoods, while also spearheading efforts that sequester massive amounts of carbon, and thus help mitigate against the worst effects of global climate change. 

During the ‘Women For Forests’ training, we will explore various topics including: resistance efforts by Indigenous women in Brazil to protect the Amazon; inspiring examples of women planting trees and regenerating damaged lands in the Democratic Republic of Congo; efforts to protect the Tongass rainforest in Alaska; international forest policy that respects the rights of Indigenous Peoples and addresses root causes of forest loss; and other stories and lessons from women’s work to stand for global forests.

As part of WECAN International’s commitment to a climate justice framework, this training will not promote any of the false solutions often associated with climate-forest programs, including carbon offsets and other market mechanisms. Rather, speakers will focus on the grassroots, community-driven, and rights-based strategies and solutions being demonstrated by women around the world.

WHEN: Wednesday April 3rd, 2019 at 11:00am PST/ 2:00pm EST (US time zones, please check your own time zone to participate.)

WHERE: This training will be hosted via Zoom, a free program similar to Skype. Check back for call-in information.

CALIFORNIA EDUCATION CHIEF TONY THURMOND (San Francisco)

Education Week magazine reported in 2017 that among all states, California’s K–12 public education ranked 41st in conditions that help children succeed, 39th in school finance and 30th in achievement. So what can we expect in 2019?

CREATING A GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE FUTURE (San Francisco)

The free market, limited government development model has been an ecological and social disaster for the developing world.
