About Shaina

Shaina Oliver, a tribal member of the Navajo Nation from Shiprock, New Mexico, is an advocate for Indigenous Peoples’ Rights. In 2015, after the EPA’s toxic mine spill affecting the Animas and San Juan Rivers, which supply water to the Navajo Nation, Shaina became more aware that the environmental disasters that happen in Colorado—where she now lives with her husband and four boys—also impact her tribe’s well-being and future. Shaina began to feel her responsibility to do her part as a mother, aunt, sister, descendant, and survivor of genocide.

Living in northeast Denver, Shaina is just south of the Suncor refinery. Sometimes she and her family can’t step outside for a breath of fresh air. On very cold days, her asthma flares, and she must be cautious and stay indoors. She worries about her youngest son, who has more allergies than his older brothers—allergies that may be asthma-related.

Testifying with Moms Clean Air Force at EPA hearings and in support of environmental bills at the U.S. Capitol is one important way Shaina lives up to her responsibility to protect all living beings and secure a future for all children. https://www.momscleanairforce.org/state-chapters/colorado/

Featured on the Earth Week Summit

Shaina was also featured on a powerful panel of four indigenous women as part of the Green Team Academy’s 2020 Earth Week Summit: Are You Indigenous or Colonized?

Climate Action Task Force

In 2019, the Mayor of Denver created an Office of Climate Action, Sustainability, & Resiliency to prepare the city for the future. A Climate Action Task Force with 26 community representatives spent the first several months of 2020 gathering data and community feedback to create a Climate Action Plan for Denver. On the November ballot, 2A is a small sales tax increase in order to begin to fund the work that has been laid out in the plan to create a greener, more resilient city. Learn more about the report and the ballot initiative that will put Denver in a position to be a leader on climate issues.

Albert Kueffner is an avid eco-justice advocate member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, CA.  Albert was honored to be one of the few elders last July to participate in the fifth annual Healing our Ecological Movement Jam (collaboration retreat) for diverse climate justice leaders, put on by Yes!, headquartered in Berkeley, CA. From  2010 until COVID-19 he did outreach and recruitment  for Western Service Workers in West Oakland, and played key roles in the successful Faith Against Fracking and No Coal in Oakland campaigns.

Albert has extensive graduate education and practice in behavioral economics. He began his career as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch with the goal of becoming a millionaire as soon as possible. During this time he was also a legislative precinct chairman for the Republican Party, only to discover that its leaders had no interest in what the grassroots thought and everything about what the rich and powerful wanted. Disillusioned, he became systems analyst and then a systems analyst instructor for the federal government in DC, and then for banks and business schools in California and Nevada.

At 44, disenchanted with monetization of human behavior to maximize profits, he dropped out to work in unarmed security until retirement in 2013 to maximize time on graveyard and swing shifts to unify mathematical microeconomics and human communications around a formula central to both, finding many applications to religion along the way.
