Ripple Week is WEA’s annual series of free, virtual events designed to inspire, mobilize, and amplify critical grassroots environmental solutions.
In honor of our 2023 U.S. Regenerative Agriculture & Health Accelerator, this series of powerful workshops is centered on regenerative, women-led solutions that nurture our communities from the land to our bodies.
This year’s theme is Abundance: We are What we Need, to celebrate the ways that our communities and the earth exist in reciprocity and in deep relationship with one another. Nikila Badua, a member of WEA’s 2022 U.S. Accelerator cohort, portrays this theme beautifully in her artwork, shown here. Nikila’s art illuminates the abundant gifts nature bestows upon us — and reminds us of our responsibility to care for the lands and waters that give us life.
The series features:
- Lyla June, an Indigenous musician, author, and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne), and European lineages, who will share her research on ancient sustainable Indigenous Food Systems and traditional agroecology.
- Jamila Norman, an urban farmer, activist, and host of Homegrown on HBO Max and Magnolia Network, whose work has helped to create a transformative, culturally and environmentally responsible food system in her hometown of Atlanta.
- Leaders from Fondo Semillas, the first feminist fund in Mexico, which mobilizes resources to finance the transformative power of organized girls, women, trans, and intersex people to ensure justice and equity.
