TRIBE

Keeping watch over Post-doom has been passed from Michael Dowd’s widow, Connie, to a small team dedicated to stoking the embers to ensure the flame of Collapse Acceptance continues to burn and spread.

Karen Perry is perhaps best known in the collapse community for her 15 Benefits of Collapse Acceptance, Tenets of GRAC/E (Getting Real About Collapse/Extinction), and supporting others in getting their own collapse accepting oxygen masks on. Prior to this, she worked as an Environmental Activist and Energy Literacy Advocate both in the streets at many protest events, and in speaking engagements at a variety of venues. Through multiple grants of books from The Post Carbon Institute, she was able to freely distribute thousands of copies of ENERGY: Overdevelopment and Delusion of Endless Growth, each with a personal conversation. She was arrested twice for civil disobendience with 350.org protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline and fossil fuels. Since 2012 she has been living and working at Chickenfoot Ranch, the “experiment in living differently/dominant culture walkaway” homestead in the Northern California Sierra Foothills she currently shares with husband Jordan Perry and her two adult sons. Her passions are reconnecting to the wild world through finding the creature inside born wild and free, but taught otherwise – and using her BA in Communications, teaching credential, and other talents to push back on dominant culture as much as possible, through something she calls Finding Feral. Local highlights include helping stop a dam threatening the nearby Bear River, re-wilding an abusive campground on same river (now a day use only area), and surviving a 2021 wildfire. She has no illusions about wriggling out of our global collapse predicament, only that perhaps we could do a better job to reduce suffering for all on the way down.
