Bioneers is hosting its 30th annual environmental conference in San Rafael (Marin County), California on October 18-20, 2019. This conference is one of the longest running environmental and social justice gatherings in the U.S. Climate activists, eco-entrepreneurs, feminists, Indigenous leaders, and an array of social justice advocates will converge at this unique event to focus on solutions and progress.

“Our civilizational crossroads reflects a crisis of consciousness. Everything's going to change, and the only question is how.” For this 30th conference, "Seeding the Field: Growing Transformative Solutions," Bioneers has “assembled a visionary program reflecting decades of transformative solutions and trail-blazing pathways that this growing community has so brilliantly developed.”

“An idea whose time has come is unstoppable. Please join with us to help realize 30 years of transformative solutions and make the Revolution from the Heart of Nature and the Human Heart. October 18-20, San Rafael, CA.

Lindy West: The Witches Are Coming

Lindy West: The Witches Are Coming

INFORUM talks with Lindy West, Contributing Opinion Writer, The New York Times; Author, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman and The Witches Are Coming (Forthcoming)

“In the age of #MeToo, where women are empowered to tell their truth rather than worry about the consequences of speaking out, there is hardly a better role model than best-selling author Lindy West. West first came to prominence as a young blogger with a no-holds-barred approach to topics such as feminism, racism, sexism and fat shaming.”

Her memoir is the subject of the Hulu series “Shrill” starring Aidy Bryant.

“In her newest book, The Witches Are Coming, she flips the language of #MeToo critics on its head. West calls for a witch hunt to examine the chasm between who we are and who we think we are. She pulls no punches calling out the misogyny prevalent in the media and the exclusionary nature of American politics for women and minorities. By extolling the world-changing magic of truth, she shows us the only way out is through: through the uncomfortable reality of today’s polarized politics and through the pressure to stay silent on issues that matter. Join West at INFORUM as she pushes us to mold our culture for ourselves, rather than be molded by it.”

Location: Marines' Memorial Theatre, 609 Sutter St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco
Time:
 6 p.m. check-in, 7 p.m. program (followed by book signing)

Author “Zadie Smith is known for her emotionally rich stories, superb dialogue, and unique perspective on contemporary culture. Smith wrote her widely acclaimed debut novel White Teeth during her final year at Cambridge before going on to cement her reputation as one of the most important voices of her generation with Swing Time, The Autograph ManOn Beauty, and NW. Grand Union, her debut short-story collection, moves across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, offering a sharply alert collection about time and place, identity and rebirth, the persistent legacies that haunt our present selves, and the uncanny futures that rush up to meet us.”

At this City Arts & Lectures event, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey talk about their new book: She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement

“In October 2017, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey broke the story of decades of sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Their work helped ignite the #MeToo movement, shift attitudes, and spur new laws, policies and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who exposed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for public service. She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement is the untold story behind that investigative reporting, from confidential discussions with top actresses to meticulous research of decades-old secret payouts and nondiscloure agreements.”
