The Indigo Girls Amy Ray and Emily Saliers recently sat down with the I4C Campaign to share their vision for the future.

Over the years, both Ray and Saliers have participated in numerous social action initiatives and recently worked with indigenous communities on solar and wind programs.

During the interview, Saliers says, “I foresee a change in energy policy. I foresee a shift in the paradigm in the energy policy away from fossil fuels, away from the use of oil, away from the military industrial complex and all those complicated relationships….I would like to foresee a world wherein those communities that have resources like wind or solar or, for lack of a better term, ‘green’ resources, that their economies and livelihood can be sustained.”

Clean energy and better livelihoods? We hope you “4C” correctly, Emily!

    Amy and Emily have actually been involved with Native renewable energy work and environmental justice in Indigenous communities since they met Winona LaDuke in 1990 and headlined their first Honor the Earth fundraising tour in 1993. After the tours, they co-founded Honor the Earth as a non-profit and are still deeply committed to promoting and supporting the organization’s mission.
