Lyn Adamson

I am a lifelong activist and Quaker, for peace, social justice and the environment.
As a mother of two and a concerned human being I really want to see our society respect and protect the earth so that future generations may enjoy their lives and experience the gifts of nature.

I fear that as a society we don’t understand our full reliance on the living systems of the planet. I’m not willing to stand by while we create conditions for mass genocide without making a public statement, and that’s why I’m involved with this fast.

My message is: we can make a difference. The future is calling us to speak up now, to stand up now, to call everyone we know to do the same – so we can change direction. I fully believe this is a life and death crisis and it is urgent that we act together.

I am a trainer in communication and conflict resolution and also involved as the Co-Chair of Canadian Voice of Women for Peace, active in Citizens Climate Lobby, and in programs of education and outreach through PeaceWorks, an initiative of Toronto Monthly Meeting of Friends (Quakers). www.peaceworkstmm.org.
