A Letter from Naomi Klein
The latest report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is even more dire and grim than expected. It’s all moving so fast. What I know as a writer and filmmaker is that the work of the IPCC and other scientific organizations is made stronger and more actionable when it is retold through the arts. Humanity has always used stories to nurture ideas and motivate transformations.
Over and over, the stories published by Orion remind us of how our actions reinforce our values. The words of Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, Robin Wall Kimmerer and so many others have helped shape our collective response to environmental challenges.
As somebody who cares about the natural world as much as I do, please join me in supporting Orion with a donation as it seeks to raise $21,000 this fall. When you donate, you are moving beyond a subscription transaction (and thank you for doing that, if you have!) and declaring yourself as a charitable partner in better environmental storytelling. That’s why all gifts matter.
For this reason, I am asking you to make the best gift that you can by October 21. The more you can contribute at this time, the greater Orion’s ability to engage voices that haven’t historically been included as storytellers in the environmental landscape. Thank you.
The Orion Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; all donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
