Ed Higgins Coast To Coast

Hello Everyone! My name is Ed Higgins and my quest is to bring light to the the corrupt institution that is our country. I started out as a voter in Arizona who couldn't vote for his candidate. From press conferences with state reps to protests to special sessions at the Arizona House, to arrests at the house and on through the state Democratic Party I went deeper down the rabbit hole. We started an organization called Election Justice USA that was instrumental in the NY Board of Education lawsuit which put 180,000 Voters back on the voting rolls. I went out to California to bring light to the voter suppression and election fraud and was introduced to the climate crisis with global warming. I went to Los Angeles to bring attention to voter suppression and election with great success. I organized a march from Washington DC to PHILLY and protested at the DNC for the week before traveling to New York, Chicago, North Dakota and many more places. After doing some research I found out how stark the reality of our situation is. With fracking polluting our waters, methane gases polluting our soil increasing our temperatures, widespread corruption accelerating the climate crisis, at the current rate humanity has 100 years left on this planet. But this is where the real work comes in.I have burned down my old life and dedicated my new life to saving humanity in spite of itself. This may have seemed like a rash decision at the time as I dropped all clients and closed down my business. I just couldn't take myself away from my journey. The universe has brought me all around America and when the universe calls you just don't say no. My end game is to help the bring about real change from out of the ashes of this revolutionary Journey. I have been documenting my journey and will eventually be putting together a documentary. I have been self funding and when that ran out I have had kind folks like you to help fund the work I do. I am presently at Standing Rock with plans to document up and down the west coast. Right now I am in a rough spot financially and need your help. I want to thank you in advance. Anything you can do to support would help me get to my next destination. Love you all! ☮

Update : Do to a gracious donor we have short term shelter! Now we are working hard to get ourselves ready for a stable Colorado launch.

Last weekend we launched the beta version of ActivateNow dot US and had our first live streamed shows : ActivateNow Network Presents Mni Wiconi - Water is Life Panel of 8 guests and Climate Crisis Panel of 7.

We also were blessed to do an Advanced screening of Awake: A Dream from Standing Rock at the ViewHouse Centennial in Colorado with a full house and a successful Question and Answer session after.

We are low on funds as we have a team of five volunteers usually working together to bring you the most morally acceptable News network. If you can support us with some donations OR if you know anyone who has a local food function that would donate to us surplus food in the Denver area that would rock. Us startup workers work on sweat equity alone and don't get paid anything. Like starving students but older :)

All of you who are receiving this message have supported me over the last year and I am more than humbled. Thank you! If you would like to contact me directly with any questions or for a free fist bump my direct line is 6236927571. Please use it!

In solidarity,

Ed Higgins

We were able to meet with Tulsi and her husband Abe today!! Yes!!

Update : We are going out on the road to launch our second show "Follow the Black Snake" and we need your help!

We are setting up the schedule now and will be moving around the country to document the pipeline camps and fights all over this country of ours. Even the Defense Secretary has concluded there is climate change and there hasn't been a better time to act!

With your donations you will be helping us with travel expenses including food, transportation and shelter throughout the US as we finish the month in Standing Rock to cover the high profile court cases.

Every little bit counts. Thank you! #ActivateNow
