Dark Mountain Project     In 2009, two English writers published a manifesto. Out of that manifesto grew a cultural movement: a rooted and branching network of creative activity, centred on the Dark Mountain journal, sustained by the work of a growing gang of collaborators and contributors, as well as the support of thousands of readers around the world.

We are making art that doesn’t take the centrality of humans for granted. We are tracing the deep cultural roots of the mess the world is in. And we are looking for other stories, ones that can help us make sense of a time of disruption and uncertainty.     Web: https://dark-mountain.net/     [25 Apr 2021]

Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)     A leading national civil rights law and policy center directed by individuals with disabilities and parents who have children with disabilities. Americans with disabilities make up one of the United States’ largest minorities. More than 25% live in poverty and only about 20% have gone to college. Seventy–five percent are unemployed. Such economic and social disenfranchisement is not an inevitable consequence of the physical and mental limitations imposed by disability; it is the result of society’s historic response to those limitations: lack of accessibility in the built environment and policies that encourage or even require exclusion, segregation, and institutionalization. The result is a legacy of prejudice and paternalism that is deeply embedded in the social consciousness.     Address: 3075 Adeline Street, Suite 210, Berkeley CA 94703     Voice: (510) 644-2555     Fax: (510) 841-8645     Email: info@dredf.org     Web: https://dredf.org/     [23 Sep 2023]

Seed the Commons     Building a food system that is just, sustainable and independent of animal exploitation involves two things: resisting and dismantling the power of the agroindustrial complex, and creating a shift in social norms where non-human animals are no longer thought of as food. Our approach to these two goals is multi-pronged and includes building awareness around the corporate takeover of food systems; sharing information about alternatives such as agroecology and activist success-stories; working within the social norms of tomorrow instead of defaulting to those of today; and promoting animal liberation.     Web: https://seedthecommons.org/     [19 Nov 2023]

Our actions target two of the worst offenders, “Oily Wells” Fargo, because its global headquarters is in our backyard (San Francisco) and more recently, JPMorgan Chase, one focus of the nationwide Stop the Money Pipeline campaign.

Silicon Valley Transit Users     We are the kinds of people who use mass transit such as VTA buses, light rail, Caltrain, and ACE instead of a car to commute.
