I want a future where everyone can enjoy safe drinking water, clean air, and a stable climate.

Where everyone can thrive—with healthy food to eat and a safe place to call home.

Where no one need fear the police, and where Black Lives Matter.

Where, across the lines that often divide us, we stand up for each other, and the earth.

Perhaps you feel called to work for such a world, too, but you are discouraged by the news.

Maybe you are outraged by so many things that you don’t know where to start.

Or you have been calling your elected officials and attending marches,

but you sense it’s not enough to really change things.

Hi, I’m Eileen

I'm here to help you make your activism more effective. In addition to teaching, I speak and write on how to build a spiritually grounded movement at the intersection racial and climate justice movement. My activist home is Earth Quaker Action Team, a scrappy little group which successfully pressured one of the largest banks in the US to stop financing mountaintop removal coal mining.

I have found that many people feel as I had before joining EQAT–discouraged by the state of the world and unsure how to help. It’s been a joy supporting thousands of activists from five continents through my teaching, speaking and writing.

"This class was truly great. It got our entire team thinking in new ways, opening vistas of what we can do & how to do it. It was exactly what I needed."
