A Conversation with Eve, Winona and Louise

“Until we can trust our own hearts, we cannot have a revolution.”

Eve Ensler’s words permeated throughout the auditorium at the Women’s Club in Minneapolis on Feb. 17 as Honor the Earth, One Billion Rising and Women’s Congress partnered to organize a powerful discussion: Extreme Extraction and Violence Against Native women.

The conversation centered around the disregard for the planet and natural resources by major oil corporations and how it directly correlates to the violence experienced by Indigenous women in North and South America.

The panel conversation not only engaged those who attended but empowered every individual to action, because the issue of violence against Native women belongs to everyone. The evening was filled with revolutionary imagery, music, refreshments and good company.
