A Quick Tour of Community Rights Organizing

Date: Thursday February 1, 2018
Time: 6pm Pacific, 7pm Mountain, 8pm Central, 9pm Eastern

Go to Webinar story: Preview and Register!

Tom Groover has an INCREDIBLE conversation with grassroots activists Markie Miller and Will Falk about recognizing and protecting the Rights of Nature through local law-making as a legal solution to a fixed governmental/corporate state system. This fixed system places corporate privilege to pillage and pollute over the rights of nature to flourish.

Markie Miller: Protecting Lake Erie’s Right to Exist with the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR)

Suspended Algae in Lake Erie, Ohio
Markie Miller is a volunteer organizer with Toledoans for Safe Water, a Board member of the Ohio Community Rights Network (OHCRN) and a National Community Rights Network (NCRN) Board member. Toledoans for Safe Water is circulating the Lake Erie Bill of Rights (LEBOR) initiative petition that recognizes and codifies the rights of Lake Erie to flourish.  After Toledo and the surrounding region lived with no drinking water for three days in 2014, in addition to decades of policy problems and pollution, Toledoans and others are now “recognizing the rights that have been ignored for way too long”…
Water from Lake Erie Ohio: A System Out of Balance
Markie and her group realize their dependence on Lake Erie and understand that Lake Erie is not just there to provide drinking water to humans or other human-centered activities. Lake Erie has a right to exist and their community has the moral obligation (duty) to protect that right. “We’ve witnessed our own vulnerability.”  Markie impels us to “Be the voice.”

Will Falk:
Respect Existence or Expect Resistance

Will Falk is a member of Deep Green Resistance ( This organization “recognizes that all life depends on clean water, breathable air, healthy soil, a habitable climate and countless relationships of complex communities and living beings living in these communities for life. And we believe that individual and social morality must emerge from a humble relationship and a humble understanding that human life and that all life depends on all these non-human others.”
With regard to the destruction of nature and violations against nature’s rights and people’s rights, Will states that “people that have their hearts broken and their hopes broken can be catalyzed into more serious forms of resistance…”  
Will was involved in the Colorado River vs. Colorado lawsuit and has done two recent interviews about this issue with Tom Groover.
