Our Mother’s Keeper

ourmotherskeeper.Com (OMK) was founded to explore the themes of environmentalism, ecofeminism, and ecological justice. Speakers will discuss their viewpoints on these issues and their interconnectedness, focusing especially on the common themes of commodification and efficient, profitable exploitation of nature and labor. Mormons typically find environmentalism and feminism threatening, hindering broader engagement of the Mormon community; OMK seeks to reduce these barriers by presenting a practical environmentalism and feminism focused on avoiding consumerism and increasing self-sufficiency in keeping with prophetic counsel.
