The Unsung Heroes: Whistleblowers, Activists, and Muckrakers Procession won “Most Patriotic” in the 4th of July Parade.
It’s hard to keep up with Love-In-Action Taos. (This website certainly can’t!) Since forming in March 2014, this small town group has organized over forty actions and events, taking part in the Global Climate Convergence, March Against Monsanto, the local agriculture movement, three peace vigils for Palestine, Pax Christi’s Hiroshima Day Vigil at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and won “Most Patriotic” in the 4th of July Parade for their Unsung Heroes: Whistleblowers, Activists, and Muckrakers procession.
Here are just a few photos from the group’s wonderful activities. Enjoy!
Love-In-Action demonstrates in the rain, the sun, and even after dark … while war rages, Love-In-Action speaks up for peace and nonviolence!
Growing gardens, sharing food, swapping seeds, bringing loaves of fresh baked bread to gatherings … it’s not just protests. Love-In-Action stands up for life in many ways!
From porch gardens to one-acre fields, Love-In-Action Taos members love to grow food! We understand that local agriculture sits in the nexus of climate, water, poverty, and community resilience issues.

We are the media! Love-In-Action Taos proclaims, holding up cameras for the camera. We are the news: both the subject and reporters!
Love-In-Action Taos painted nearly 100 banners of inspirational leaders for social justice, both living and passed on.
