While the oppressors in power harm & exploit the planet & all its inhabitants, people of color have always been on the frontlines of the struggle for environmental justice but we are not always heard. In an effort to center the importance of our voices, this 52-page issue features work by a variety of talented writers & artists of color from around the world!
Topics & themes include environmental racism, ecofeminism, anticapitalism, decolonizing science, indigenous technologies, murder of environmental defenders, man-made disasters, sustainability, animal justice, healing, & more. “Madre Tierra” also features an interview with one of the late Gloria Anzaldúa’s closest friends: the radical Chicana Lesbian Curandera Ari Chagoya about her work as a healer, sobadora, doula, artist & spiritual activist.
Beautiful cover art by the legendary Judithe Hernández.
