FORA.tv Speaker - Ellen Augustine
Ellen Augustine's passion to create a just, peaceful, and sustainable world has led her to run for U.S. Congress and found/cofound four nonprofits focusing on media violence, mentoring at-risk youth, citizen diplomacy, and environmental restoration.
She co-authored (as Ellen Schwartz) Taking Back Our Lives in the Age of Corporate Dominance from an optimism that simultaneously recognizes the urgency of our times and the power of intention and conscious action.
She currently speaks on Stories of Hope: profiles of people who are creating businesses that increase profits by being eco-friendly, communities and schools that nurture and sustain us, and initiatives that revitalize our environment (www.storiesofhope.us). She has been a voice for the common good-balancing the present and future needs of people and the planet in all decisions-on numerous radio and television shows, and in magazines such as Utne Reader. She has served on several nonprofit boards, including the National Women's Political Caucus and the Sierra Club.
