Honor the Earth “failed to take these accusations seriously” and engaged in sex discrimination and reprisal against former employee Margaret Campbell, reads the lawsuit filed Tuesday in a Minnesota state court.
“Instead of acting promptly to protect the community from this predator, Honor the Earth tried to silence Campbell to protect the organization’s reputation,” reads the complaint.
Honor the Earth was founded in 1993 by members of the Indigo Girls folk band and Native American activist Winona LaDuke, who ran as vice president on the Green Party ticket alongside Ralph Nader in 1996 and 2000.
Founded to focus on Native American environmental issues, Honor the Earth is at the center of anti-fossil fuel activism. The group organizes tribal opposition to pipeline projects across the U.S. heartland, including the Dakota Access Pipeline.
