After years of ignoring indigenous peoples, the U.S. environmental movement has embraced them as partners in protecting the integrity of ecosystems and as teachers in modeling a truly sustainable lifestyle. What are some of the traditions of earth care that the Kumeyaay lived out for thousands of years here in San Diego County and how did those practices grow out of their religion?  

For this FREE event sponsored by the Interfaith Coalition for Earth Justice, former ICEJ Chairperson, Rev. Dr. Beth Johnson, will interview several members of the Kumeyaay nation including eco-justice activists Bobby Wallace and Sarahmarie Llyemewaa Redfern. Mr. Wallace and Ms. Redfern will also reflect on their life journeys as activists, direct us toward local eco-justice issues, and address what true justice from the U.S. might look like for the Indigenous. 

Join us on Thurs. June 27 at 7 PM at the Southeastern Live Well Center, 5101 Market St. San Diego.  This event, part of ICEJ’s Advancing Earth Justice series, will also be recorded for later viewing.
