Her Many Voices Foundation (https://hermanyvoices.org) joins with the Posner Center to provide practical information on the ways in which hemp is revolutionizing international aid and development. We invite you to join us for an intimate gathering with Alicia Fall, Founder and Visionholder of Her Many Voices Foundation to learn about how you can use hemp to further your cause. Fall is a Colorado based Indigenous woman who has been working for over a decade locally and abroad to protect our mother earth. She has spoken extensively, nationally and internationally, on the benefits of hemp to address climate change and was recently featured in Hemp today (https://hemptoday.net/haiti-hemp-project/) and has given a TED Talk on the Art of Igniting Action (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36TNINovPkk).
Attendees can expect to leave with concrete steps on how they can use hemp in their international work as well as direction to resources for further information. Attendance is capped at 30 participants and we will provide a light meal, with hemp based products for attendees. So while this program is free of charge, we request that you register here.
Fall’s educational background comes as a former member of FFA (Future Farmers of America) and graduate of an agricultural High School and University. Ms Fall is a recipient of the New York State Assembly Citation Award, board member for Coalition Against Global Genocide, Tiyospaye Winyan Maka’s (Lakota for Extended Family of Women of the Earth) Was’te’s (Women’s Alliance to Save The Earth) and the Boulder Valley Indigenous Peoples Day Parade and PowWow, all as a representative for Indigenous Peoples. Her philosophy is “Whatever I do for another, I do for myself.”
Please RSVP here as space is limited and food will be provided.
