Hannah Bacon on the last leg of her march!

The Hardest Part (from today’s POV) The Hardest Part (from today’s POV) Hannah Bacon writes on June 2, 2021: Hey friends! It’s been a while… thanks for hanging in there with me! I am two weeks from the finish, and realize I haven’t posted in two months! My lack of posting is partly because I am in a time warp (truly shocked so much time has passed) and partly because I’ve had some serious writer’s block. Today, two months and 1,000 miles since my last post, Continue reading →

2021 Walk for Our Grandchildren

2021 WALK FOR OUR GRANDCHILDREN In 2013, a multi-generational group of climate activists walked from Camp David, Maryland, to Washington, DC. Their goal: to tell President Obama and other policy makers that we must keep the majority of fossil fuels in the ground. Now, in 2021, elders and youth are walking once again to demand climate action from President Biden. Biden has promised bold actions to address climate change, yet his current proposals are still inadequate to address the climate emergency. The 2021 Walk for Continue reading →

March Against Detaining Asylum-seeking Families

Two years ago, Pascha Morgan walked 1200 miles from Des Moines, Iowa to the Texas/Mexico border — a solo journey he dubbed the March Against Detaining Asylum-seeking Families (or MAD-AF).

The climate emergency also motivates Pascha in his work, and he has been very active in Des Continue reading →

Lee Camp’s Moment of Clarity

Ed Fallon joins Lee Camp’s program on April 29, 2021, to discuss The Race to Save the World, the Great March for Climate Action, and various matters of political and planetary importance — including Andrew Yang’s secret love for the Bold Iowa Climate Penguins.

The Fallon Forum radio talk show, blog, and podcast

Dear Friends, CHECK OUT THIS WEEK’S PODCAST! In a rational, high-functioning country, it wouldn’t take a film like The Race to Save the World  to mobilize people to fight climate change. Sadly, since we have some work to do on that front, perhaps this latest film by award-winning producer, Joe Gantz, might do the trick. Joe’s other films include American Winter (about poverty in the US), Ending Disease (about stem-cell research), and Taxi Cab Confessions (title says all). Joe’s work is outstanding. It’s also cutting-edge, tackling Continue reading →

He published “Marcher, Walker, Pilgrim,” a book chronicling the trek, last November. Fallon, 61, views the environmental and consequential global economic threats emerging through climate Continue reading →
