Rachel Marco-Havens is a multiplatform “solutionary” artist, performer, community activator, facilitator and storyteller. She jumped onto the fast moving merry-go-round of this movement in response to an emergency effort to protect the her community’s water from a corporate water grab. On the heels of that unprecedented success, she has been working to bridge the intersections within the environmental, social and spiritual justice movements in her own region and beyond. As well, Rachel sits on the Advisory Board of the Center For Earth Ethics and as a Representative for Wittenberg Center focusing on Indigenous and Environmental issues at the United Nations.
With a strong focus on Women’s Leadership, Youth Empowerment and bridging intergenerational connections, Rachel inspires us to connect the silos of social, environmental and spiritual justice movements. Fostering the expansion of young leaders wherever she travels, she also works closely with youth driven activation, including The International Indigenous Youth Council and Earth Guardians’ New York Chapters .
“A lot happens when we change our mind, and even more happens when we bring creative flow to the movement. We all have gifts to bring to the work, and only together will we weave the strongest threads of our safety net!”
