program date: 
Mon, 02/17/2014
For nearly 30 years, Holly Pruett has been a community organizer, serving as a leader in and consultant to the nonprofit community in Oregon and nationally. From ten years of work with survivors of domestic and sexual violence in her 20s, Holly has gone on to work for the LGBT community, on racial justice and environmental issues, and for stronger schools and social services. 
 
She has also worked for many years in the summers at the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, as a production assistant and office coordinator, and where I had the great privilege of getting to know her better as we worked together.

How do we know what the clean-up is going to cost?  Why not just dump the money in the river to soak up the oil….?
