This Holiday Season Patagonia is Giving Away The $10 Million in Unplanned Cash Benefiting Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge

This holiday season, Patagonia is giving away the $ 10 million in unplanned cash we saw as a result of last year’s irresponsible tax cut. A tax cut that was not only a windfall for the oil and gas industry but will also open up 19 million acres of Alaska’s wildlife refuge. The timing of this tax cut couldn’t have been worse.

Our planet is in peril because of human-caused climate disruption. Patagonia believes the scientists—including the authors of Friday’s National Climate Assessment report—and it is urgent that we all do something about it.

Since 1985, Patagonia has funded grassroots activism as part of our commitment to 1% for the Planet. This additional $ 10 million will go a long way for the groups defending our air, water, and land. It will also include support for the regenerative organic agriculture movement, which we think will not only slow the climate crisis but could begin to reverse it.

Patagonia’s founder, Yvon Chouinard, says catastrophe is here, and we need all the help we can get to address the climate crisis. He said, “Our government continues to ignore the seriousness and causes of the climate crisis. It is pure evil. We need to double down on renewable energy solutions. We need an agriculture system that supports small family farms and ranches, not one that rewards chemical companies intent on destroying our planet and poisoning our food. And we need to protect our public lands and waters because they are all we have left.”

Soledad O’brien Slams Cnn For Giving ‘White Supremacists’ Airtime

(Photo Credit: Soledad O’Brien courtesy)

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien slammed the network on Sunday for giving airtime to “racists” and “white supremacists” in an effort to boost ratings.

Her comments were in response to a viral Twitter thread created by Shareblue’s Oliver Willis that bashed CNN hosts for calling out “abhorrent behavior” and then inviting commentators on their shows who spew such behavior.

“They give a platform ― and their credibility ― to racists/white supremacists/ all in the name of ‘hearing them out,’ (which is a ratings ploy btw),” wrote O’Brien, who left CNN in 2013 after 10 years with the network.

The veteran journalist reiterated her CNN shade on Monday, tweeting that she had expressed the same criticism in the past.

“It was true then and remains true today,” she wrote.

Twitter user Ajamu Baraka noted: “CNN giving air time to racist and white supremacist is nothing new. During the 2016 campaign me and Jill Stein constantly pointed out how the major news outlets were giving millions of dollars of free time to Trump’s white supremacy.

It’s unclear whether a specific show segment inspired Willis to criticize the network, as he expressed online: “my major problem with how cnn operates is their anchors/hosts want to have their cake and eat it too. they want credit for calling out abhorrent behavior but when they enable the same behavior they insist theyre just “hearing them out.”

He appeared to mock what he believes to be CNN’s strategy: “Gassing toddlers and putting babies in cages is disgusting and beyond the pale! our next guest will now defend those things i just said are reprehensible, because every point of view is viable,” he wrote.

Back in 2016 when O’Brien appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” she pointed out how hate speech is being normalized by giving airtime to Trump surrogates, who oftentimes double as white supremacists, per urbanmecca.net.

“If you look at Hillary Clinton’s speech [on why Trump’s policies are racist] she basically pointed out that what Donald Trump has done — actually quite well — has normalized White supremacy,” O’Brien stated. “I think she made a very good argument, almost like a lawyer. Here are ways in which he has actually worked to normalize conversations that many people find hateful.”

“I’ve seen White supremacists being interviewed because they are Trump delegates. And they do a five-minute segment, the first minute or so talking about what they believe as White supremacists. So you have normalized that,” she explained.

GIVING THANKS: For Giving Tuesday, the nonprofit Dress for Success has rounded up some designer and apparel companies like Bruno Magli, Altuzarra and Project Gravitas to promote its worldwide work.
Committed to helping women reach economic independence, the group has created the #DFSPowerPiece social media campaign and microsite to encourage donations. In addition to the aforementioned three brands, Christian Dior Makeup, Peruvian Connection, Rent the Runway, Sorel and Wander Beauty are involved in this year’s effort.

Magli’s selection is the Gala sued pump, Altuzarra’s pick is the Pencil Skirt and Christian Dior Makeup’s choice is the Ultra Rouge 999 Lipstick.
In years past, the group marked the annual post-Thanksgiving event as “Giving Shoesday,” where people were encouraged to donate shoes to the organization. Chied executive officer Joi Gordon said that this is the first time the group is working with multiple brands that will have dedicated items to help ring up sales for Dress For Success. Some of the participating brands are regular donors to DFS.
“This will obviously be driven by not only the brands, but also our database and social media. We’re excited
