Bios:

Jeremy Rothe-Kushel has a background in politics - from local to international, officeholder to activist - with experience in community organizing, mediajamming, documentary journalism and consensus-building in deep politics, economics and ecologics. Jeremy aims to coalesce a partisan-transcendent and permaculturally-informed #FullSpectrumPopulist #IntegralPolitics from the #RadicalMiddle with a #WeThePeoplePlatform and #CoalitionCabinet.

He is working on a documentary project titled September Eleventh Uncoverage based on a decade of his investigative research, activism and experience of covering and uncovering the 9/11 cover-up.

Rothe-Kushel has put public figures across the political spectrum on the record about vital issues that are often controversial and always emancipatory. Some of his journalistic encounters include Michael Hayden, John Yoo, Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Mike Pompeo, Kris Kobach, Ron Paul, Alex Jones, Jay Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Jill Stein and Amy Goodman.

Jeremy has a working background in permaculture design and implementation, and future-roots music production, performance and education. While at Williams College completing his B.A. in Religion, he founded and over the next decade taught an original approach to musical education called "HipHop Empowerment, with students of diverse ages and backgrounds from the Bronx to Boston, Southern Vermont to South Los Angeles.

Although he believes that well mineralized and microbialized, high-carbon humus might help solve most humanity's problems, Jeremy currently sees that the "invisible domain" of politics, culture, multimedia, law, deliberative deep democracy and cooperative startup economics contains key elements to assemble and strategic means necessary to that 'soilutionary' end.

You can hear Jeremy on No Lies Radio and on the Pacifica Radio Network: False Flag Weekly News and Antedote.

Nicole Correri, the preeminent female Shia speaker in North America, considers herself a student of Islam and a follower of the Ahl al-Bayt (as). Before graduating with Honors in M. Ed. in Counseling from George Mason University, she received her B.A. in Psychology, Minor in Early Childhood Education from George Washington University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She is a member of numerous academic honor societies, including Phi Beta Kappa.

Nicole is a powerful public speaker who motivates her audience to embody Islam in practical, relevant, and meaningful ways. With her solid academic background and passion for the religion, she brings a unique perspective to her audience with the goals of inspiration, education, and transformation. Her work stems out of the gap she felt and observed for the English speaking Muslims in the West to make sense of religion in their context and lived realities. She is interested in an intellectual and inspirational approach to faith and articulates a practical theology with a sensibility for social, gender, and ethical justice. Nicole is also committed to inter and intra-faith work, cultivating our shared humanity and bringing people together for the common good. She continues to study Arabic with the Fawakih Institute since 2012 and as of Spring 2016 will be finishing up her Masters degree in Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations at Hartford Seminary and has been accepted into the Ph.D. program in the Religion Department at Boston University.
