The Extreme Energy Extraction (EEE) Collaborative grew out of its first 
Movement Summit held in February 2013 that brought together a diverse 
group of 70 activists fighting against energy extraction from every 
corner of the country, industry and type of organization.  The 
Collaborative aims to create a more unified movement against energy 
extraction through creating shared languages, fostering relationships 
across the diverse spectrum of groups working on the issues, and 
providing space for dialogue that allows innovative collaborations to 
form.  We envision a united movement led by front line communities and 
grassroots organizations for a just energy system, where no community is 
sacrificed for another.

For our 2nd Summit, we are inviting 100 people ranging from grassroots 
leaders to national environmental organizations, and activist funders to 
organizers, for an extended weekend of conversation to share knowledge 
and develop concrete collaborative projects that strengthen our 
movement.  There is still space for about 30 more awesome folks (yes, 
YOU) to join us, so please come!

The Collaborative is not convened by a single organization, funder, or 
coalition, but instead grew out of grassroots organizers recognizing the 
need to work together across boundaries.  The Summit will be facilitated 
by the Highlander Center for Research and Education.
