San Luis Obispo Mothers for Peace has been the legal intervenor on behalf of the public in matters regarding the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant since 1973. Currently, we are intervening at the California Public Utilities Commission, arguing that the nuclear plant should be taken offline much sooner than the scheduled shutdown of 2014. I am one of two spokespersons for the organization. As a member of Biodiversity First! I advocate for preservation of biodiversity in California. I am the secretary of the organization. I am also an advanced facilitator of the Work that Reconnects, developed by Joanna Macy, to assist people with translating their feelings about our destabilized world into action.
How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?
I am very interested in meeting other women who are young, inspired, and passionate about environmental work. I feel that we can mutually support each other with sharing stories of both success and failure.
What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?
I can offer the Work that Reconnects, and I can offer my experience from more than 40 years of environmental advocacy.
