Tim DeChristopher with Terry Tempest Williams, Conversation, 27 September 2013 – Video

Recorded at the Chicago History Museum in Chicago, Illinois on September 27, 2013.

Tim DeChristopher is a climate justice activist and co-founder of the nonprofit Peaceful Uprising. In 2008, Tim committed an act of nonviolent civil disobedience when he disrupted a government oil and gas lease auction in an attempt to protect fragile lands in southern Utah from long-term damage.

After being imprisoned for 21 months, he was released in April 2013 and is now on a three-year probation. The recently released documentary film, Bidder 70, tells DeChristophers courageous story. The fall of 2013, he began studies at Harvard Divinity School.

“ Those who write the rules are those who profit from the status quo. If we want to change that status quo, we might have to work outside of those rules because the legal pathways available to us have been structured precisely to make sure we dont make any substantial change.”
Tim DeChristopher

This event is a continuation of the 25 September 2013 event held in Santa Fe, NM, both which were part of the Lannan In Pursuit of Cultural Freedom series.
