Between the Waters (BTW) is now one year old. Wow, what a learning experience building an organization from scratch. But there is one thing I have learned in all this, one person can’t do it alone. So I have many people to thank:
BJ McManama – Campaign Organizer and tech with the Indigenous Environmental Network. Her humor, her love of the Earth, and her blessings for this work are so appreciated. BTW could not have started without her as part of our shared love of the Earth and our firm belief that the Earth must be protected from #dirtyfossilfuel.
Another valued partner is Climate Reality Project. We have two of their employees working with us on programming, Josephine Gingerich and Jason Hallmark. They are insightful and tech savy. Honestly, another Cimate Reality member is Kelly Yagatich. She has been with us since the beinning.
Ohio Sierra Club has been fantastic in their work with us. Mary Aguilera (volunteer with Ohio Sierra Club and Ohio Poor Peoples Campaign) and Elissa Yoder Mann (employee) have been the absolute best in contacts, social media and, of course, Elissa’s dog Moose! We had a whole line of tweets with Moose. The fight against plastics is real and we are all in this together.
And now for the wonderful news. Between the Waters received a $5000 grant to continue to illuminate and educate on the fight against plastics and the fossil fuel industry through Tackling the A-Z Impacts of Plastics and Fossil Fuels. Our programming begins on October 11, 2022.
