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.

Stories are an essential part of the human condition. Storytelling allows us to exchange ourselves with one another and build community. Unfortunately, for many of us who belong to marginalized backgrounds, our stories have been defined for us, or ripped from our personhood entirely. We are placed into boxes, told to homogenize our experience, make it palatable to others. Through the Alumni Leadership Cohort, we recognize the vastness of experience, and how storytelling can be used to reclaim that vastness. It is our pleasure to introduce just a glimpse of the diverse narratives that exist within the 3rd annual DDCSP Alumni Leadership Cohort.
