Annie and Alanna

Annie and Alanna first met at a Green Party function in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1997. Annie was then living in Lancaster and Alanna had moved back to Chambersburg, her hometown. They kept in touch thereafter through the Green Party (GP), in which they were both very active. As they got to know each other, Alanna shared with Annie the intention she had for formally incorporating Earth Rights Institute. Earth Rights has two meanings: the right of the earth for protection and respect by humans, and the human right to the earth’s land and natural resources. So, they put their heads and hearts together and created ERI, a 501(c)3 non-profit that fully reflected both of their combined ideals and aspirations.
