At March’s Climate Café on Mighty Networks, there will be time to reflect on our own imperfect activism.

Imperfect activism has many different areas of discussion, including (but not limited to):

  • giving up
  • forgiving yourself and moving forward
  • mistakes of the past
  • lack of knowledge
  • pushing ourselves past our limit
  • self-criticism and guilt
  • not appreciating small victories
  • picking the lesser of two evils

The sun rises and it sets. The water keeps moving. We too must follow the paths of the current of our life. Let’s talk about those sticks in the mud, the rocks, and the falls that we have had to endure while finding our way past.

This discussion will be guided by a climate-aware therapist, Ashley Radtke, who is on a mission to support change-makers as they pursue ambitious work while honoring their playful, messy, explorative self. Ashley uses the lens she cultivated as a system-focused therapist to find patterns and context that can boost change or maintain stability in the work of environmental stewardship.

This is your best opportunity to connect with a community that gets you, with folks who are experiencing many of the emotions that climate change has brought out in your heart and mind.

There is nothing for you to commit to except to gather your favorite beverage, a journal, find a comfortable spot with your Zoom window open, and just be you.


Meet your friends. Speak your #ClimateTruth.

The idea is simple
