United Confederacy Of Taino People

The Taino Peoples are Indigenous Peoples of the Circum-Caribbean region.

The United Confederation of Taino People (UCTP) is dedicated to the promotion and protection of the human rights, cultural heritage, and spiritual traditions of the Taíno and other Caribbean Indigenous Peoples for the present and future generations.

With the historic establishment of the UCTP, the descendants of the first “American Indians” to encounter Columbus in 1492 now have a legitimate forum to present a unified voice to address various issues concerning contemporary Indigenous Peoples throughout the Caribbean and the Diaspora.

The UCTP works at various levels locally, nationally, and internationally and is well-respected entity affiliated with the Caribbean Organization of Indigenous Peoples; the Caribbean Amerindian Development Organization; and the International Indian Treaty Council.

Thinking Indigenous Again;

To live in a world that values language, traditions and culture for all Indigenous Peoples, where Human Rights are recognized and people are living and working to their full potential.

Mission Statement—Tribes helping tribes; achieving cultural sustainability by working together with Indigenous Peoples to rediscover their identity and potential through education.

The Watershed Center

The Watershed Center is a retreat and resource center for changemakers. We offer seminars, workshops, consulting and organizational retreats designed to help people align their lives with their own deepest sense of purpose, to strengthen the creative capacity of organizations and to facilitate strategic conversations in service of democracy, ecology and liberation.
Center For Earth Ethics
 The Center for Earth Ethics (CEE) is a forum for education, public discourse and movement building that draws on faith and wisdom traditions to address our ecological crisis and its root causes. CEE regards our climate change as the consequence of a deeper malady: an economic development model that exploits people and nature for short-term financial gain. We cultivate the public consciousness necessary to make changes in policy and culture that will establish a new paradigm based on the sustained well-being of all people and our planet. Founded at Union Theological Seminary in 2015, the Center builds on Union’s broad ecumenical base and long-standing commitment to social justice.

Relational Uprising is a training, coaching and consulting project that supports inspired activists, and organizers engaged in frontline movement building to cultivate interdependent relational culture. We believe it is time for a new era of social change work in which we bring an intentionally humanizing, relational culture into our lives, organizations, and movements. Before launching as Relational Uprising, the project was incubated with Mark Fairfield, founder of the Leadership Institute at the Relational Center, an innovative Los Angeles-based non-profit dedicated to building capacity for a shift in culture toward one that values empathy, diversity, and interdependence.
