James (Jim) Otto is a civil rights attorney practicing in Northridge California and specializing in the protection of American workers and green card holders from illegal civil rights violations. For many years he has investigated the flip side of outsourcing of jobs overseas, and has filed lawsuits on behalf of American workers who have been fired from US employers who want to import immigrants into the US, utilizing the visa-work programs, in order to work for lower salaries. He is currently handling a criminal fraud law suite against Disney Corporation for firing over 700 competent US workers so Disney could import less trained foreign workers to replace them. A similar law suit has been filed against the Screen Actors Guild. Jim was a former Marine Corps officer in the 1970s. From 1996 to 2002, he worked for the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing prosecuting violators of civil rights laws. His website is LawOfficeofJamesAOtto.com

Having grown up in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, Reverend James Stern is an African American pastor and civil rights activist devoted to racial justice and reconciliation between the Blacks, Whites and other races. He is the founder of No Color Inc and Racial Reconciliation. His community work has included facilitating dialogues between the black community and Korean shop owners following the 1992 LA riots, brokering a truce between the Crips and the Bloods and founding a community banking system within the NAACP. In addition, James has a particularly unique history. Having been incarcerated in Mississippi for mail fraud he found himself sharing a prison cell with the former Ku Klux Klan wizard and recruiting officer Edgar Ray Killen. Previously Killen had been sentenced to 60 years for masterminding the murders of three civil rights workers in 1964. That story later became dramatized in the film Mississippi Burning. During the course of James’ and Killen’s developing relationship, James became the klansman’s confessor and Killen confided many secrets in conversation and letters about the Klan and its history that remain relatively unknown.

Derrick Jensen has become one of the nation’s leading voices of cultural and environmental dissent, who writes on how civilization is devastating the environment and the natural world, and our society’s denial of that fact. Utne Reader listed Derrick among the 50 visionaries changing the world. In sharp contrast to environmental optimists who believe working within the corporate system will offset the tenuous planetary balance threatened by climate change, Derrick has advocated for many years a “dismantling of civilization” which can include radical dissent as well as imparting wisdom to our children.

Derrick has written many books, his most recent being “The Derrick Jensen Reader: Writings on Environmental Revolution” and “Earth At Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet.” He also hosts a weekly radio program, Resistance Radio, on the Progressive Radio Network every Sunday evening at 6:00 pm Eastern time. His website is www.DerrickJensen.org
