Impacts of My Work: 
I have communicated Social and Environmetal Justice struggles to thousands of listeners and raised several thousand dollars to support the work of the participants involved.

As a folk singer my mission for my Wild Gift project – This Land is Our Land – is to express people’s history and struggle through song-stories that inspire listeners to become aware of and be active in social and environmental justice.  In partnership with community action groups and individuals in the eastern United States, I have created ‘This Land’, an Environmental Justice Folk Recording.  On my website you can listen to all of the songs and interviews, as well as read the lyrics and background information.  I perform the material from the CD while offering reflections on the project and environmental justice issues.  If you are interested in having me give a performance or seminar near you, please let me know.  Consider purchasing a CD or donating to the project.  Purchases and contributions are given to the community action groups whose stories ‘This Land’ supports.
