Tavaputs Action Council

uem (7).jpgWe are a spokes council of grass roots groups from the Colorado Plateau and nearby seeking a fundamental transformation of power in our society. We advocate for Climate Justice, clean water, protection of sacred sites, healthy land, and clean air.

We believe in the power of people taking direct action that not only disrupts how power is held, but simultaneously creates the world we want to build. We believe in the power of story telling, music, and art to cultivate the imagination needed to create a different world.

We are building a movement of people working towards a world where the rights of Mother Earth are respected, where the rights of First Nations are recognized, and where we practice compassion that allows us to look across the abysses of racism and genocide that lie between us.
