"At the Moab Congress, we will map possibilities and pathways toward achieving whole health and justice in this generation and for all generations to come. Inspired by our environmental foremothers, our hope is to craft a dynamic articulation of the pressing rights future generations have to a livable world and the responsibilities of present generations to uphold those rights. Our labors will yield a living affirmation of these rights and responsibilities in word, art, music, and story.
Questions that will animate the gathering include:
What are the sacred rights of future generations and the responsibilities of present generations?
How might we most powerfully write, craft, sing, pray, dream, speak, and legislate these rights and visions into being?
What might a civil rights movement for future generations look like? What does such a movement need?
What does reclaiming power as women look like? How might women organize on behalf of future generations in ways that transcend traditional strategies of action/resistance, and that honor, embody, and translate the sacred feminine spirit into the realm of direct political and social action?"
