Free Lunch Society (Basic Citizens Income Explainer)

I'm so delighted to share the explainer video I recently voiced to highlight ’Free Lunch Society’, a film about Basic Citizens Income, created by Moving Docs. The explainer was produced by Ben at Film & Campaign

Basic Citizens Income is a concept I love - so doing my job was even more of a pleasure than usual! Also, since the project was not-for-profit and aligned perfectly with my Ethical Voice policy, it benefited from 50% reduced rates. If you'd like to find out more, go to

Free Lunch Society - thanks again for involving me in such an exciting, progressive campaign.

...The Barred Owl! Give A Hoot About Forests And Free Speech...

Enchanted by this beauty today - the Barred Owl.  I just discovered discovered that it’s known for its distinctive hoot - and it's symbolic of expressing yourself through your voice.

The owl's habitat, the Great Northern Forest, is a unique global ecosystem circling the planet. Now though, the forest and free speech are both being threatened by Resolute Forest Products, who, ironically, cut down trees so that they can become books, newspapers and magazines.

Instead of facing criticism of their unsustainable practices, Resolute are telling Greenpeace to stop talking about it, using a lawsuit called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (#SLAPP), a dangerous tool to stop people from speaking out.

Love forests? Believe in free speech? Well, be inspired by the Barred Owl and give a hoot!

...White Hot Truth.

Use your voice. Make some noise. Social media makes everyone a broadcaster. Use your platform, even if that platform is Thanksgiving dinner with your relatives. Annoy the shit out of people with how concerned you are. Be willing to be disliked. Don’t let the pushback push you over. Dare to be idealistic. Something you say will stir a new thought that will lead to better action. The future is listening. Speak up.

- Danielle Laporte, White Hot Truth (Chapter 10)
