Defend the Sacred: RSF Winter 2017 Newsletter
In this latest RSF Quarterly, we listen deeply to members of our community as they recount stories of struggle and newfound strength. This issue’s Clients in Conversation is international and features Native people’s voices from as far north as Alaska, down to the South African region of Pondoland. Despite being halfway across the world from one another, Enei Begaye of the Black Mesa Water Coalition, and Sinegugu Zukulu and Margie Pretorius of Sustaining the Wild Coast are linked by their courageous fight for clean air and water. In the later pages, you’ll find another story of resilience, this time from Colorado where Belay Enterprises is located. The social enterprise is a much-needed anchor for people who have experienced homelessness, addiction or incarceration, and helps them transform their lives for the better. Last but not least, don’t miss reading Don’s CEO letter, which reports what he saw and learned from his trip to Standing Rock in North Dakota.
