We can meet our eco-anxiety and validate its concerns. Yet we need not be ruled by fear.

Welcome to One Earth Sangha, a virtual EcoDharma center supporting a global community in the Path of Engaged Practice.

Campaigns for Action

Featured Action Organizations

  • Indigenous Environmental Network: This network of grassroots indigenous peoples seeks to protect the sacredness of Mother Earth from contamination and exploitation by strengthening, maintaining and respecting traditional teachings and natural laws. They address environmental and economic justice through education and political activism.
  • Honor the Earth: Established in 1993 by Winona LaDuke and Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, Honor The Earth creates awareness, supports Native environmental issues, and develops needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using music, the arts, the media, and Indigenous wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on the Earth and be a voice for those not heard. They provide both financial support and organizing support to Native environmental initiatives.
  • Indigenous Re-Generation: An Indigenous-led nonprofit that works to assist Native Communities in re-indigenization and Tribal sovereignty through a re-generative approach to food cultivation, medicinal farming, lifestyle and culture, and eco-village education programs.

  • Urge your senator to cosponsor and pass the Tribal Wildlife Corridors Act to invest in the work Tribal nations are doing to reconnect and restore the habitats wildlife rely on for their survival.
