Coffee & Something Stronger with Jacob Johns

Date:
May 4, 2021

Time:
10:00 am – 11:00 am

Jacob Johns, community organizer, social justice, environmental justice, and minority rights activist, joins GIPL's Codi Norred for this week's episode of Coffee & Something Stronger. Coffee & Something Stronger is a weekly show, featuring environmental leaders around Georgia and across the country.

"We as a society crave new models for progressing the consciousness of humanity. As a community organizer, my work stems from this effort to innovate new ways of moving society forward. The out-dated models of how we live on this planet are failing, and we need new paradigms that uplift the planet to a higher state that heals our world. My organizing efforts have focused on multiple interconnected issues involving social justice and minority rights, as well as environmental protection. Currently, I immerse myself in progressing society in a multitude of ways.

I draw from my cultural heritage continuously as I work, using traditional ceremonious concepts, combined with art and activism with each event, rally and movement, taking us one step closer to a mindful planetary consciousness. I am stepping full time into this work in order to help co-create tangible goals instead of adding to opposition. We as human beings need to create new ways of connecting that break down imagined walls of separation."
