The vast majority of activists – even the most passionate and most effective – focus on a single issue. Few of us dare to study, explore, understand, absorb, and affirm the vast interweaving injustices that we humans have brought into being.

Yet two artists – Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman – are daring us to do just that, to raise our awareness of all “unnatural disasters,” to envision a better future, and to take steps to change the global system.

The above list, the product of a group activity facilitated by Naima and her collaborators today at the Allied Media Conference, is a simple expression of this bold proposition.

This is network consciousness at work: the spirit of the Buddha in the age of the global internet. For more information on their work visit www.hurricaneseasontour.com .
