We’re starting off our 2021 POLLEN season with a little bit of futurism…Afrofuturism that is. Black History Month, Black Future Month, Black Panther the movie, Black Panthers the people, Octavia Butler, and N.K. Jemisin all have us thinking about alternate endings.

Big thanks to everyone who made [POLLEN] so amazing! We experimented with a new format and I think it’s been super successful. I can’t wait to see you all again in 2021 for more DDCSP programming!

Welcome to a hot take on book clubs called [POLLEN]. This is an invitation to weekly bite sized explorations (all 30 minutes or less) of all the dope things that pollinate conservation in our lives. We’re talking about challenging the ideas of “pristine” forests and sci-fi queerness all through forms of IGTV, art, music, op-eds, poetry, and more. These are explorations to spark conversation, awe, joy, creativity, and pleasure.

I have been working for a while on a spreadsheet to share with the network. The spreadsheet lists almost every call to action (petitions, emails, phone calls, donations, GoFundMes, etc.) that I've seen in my emails and social media.

I know we are all doing our best to support individuals and organizations in their work for justice, as well as supporting people who are just trying to live and thrive under systems of oppression. Whether you've got money or time to spare, these are steps that you can easily take to make a difference.

Though the methods and ideologies have long been practiced (by Indigenous, Black, Disabled, and LGBTQIA+ communities), COVID-19 health crises and Black Lives Matter protests have brought the term "mutual aid" to the vocabulary of organizations, mainstream media, and organizers. Of course the popularization of a term is often unfortunately followed by the misuse of it. So what exactly is mutual aid? What is it not? And how can we see it in the future of DDCSP?

Black lives matter today and every day.

I want to speak to my fellow able-bodied and/or neurotypical folks about how we can (and must) better incorporate disability justice into sustainability spaces and into our definition of environmental justice.
