Gail Pellet.jpg

Gail Pellett is an award-winning writer, director and producer of TV documentaries and public affairs programs for PBS, many of them in collaboration with Bill Moyers.  She has also reported on TV and radio for NBC, CBC (Canada), NPR, Pacifica Radio & WBCN (Boston).  Her articles have appeared in the Washington Post Magazine, Mother Jones, the Village Voice, New Age and webzines. Her subject matter has addressed a broad spectrum of issues and ideas ranging from justice, mercy and reconciliation in South Africa to love and romance in 1980 Beijing; from human rights trials involving Salvadoran Generals to religious approaches to the global environmental crisis.  In 2016, she published Forbidden Fruit, a memoir about working at Radio Beijing in 1980. Recently her articles, like “Our Lawns are Killing Us,” have been published on the Medium platform.


She began her environmental activism in 1968 working at Barry Commoner’s Environment Magazine in St Louis. As a co-founder of ChangeHampton in 2022, she works with a group of citizen activists to promote and educate our community about restorative landscaping—the creation of healthy, non-toxic, bio-diverse, resilient and sustainable yards and landscapes— through an educational website and the creation of a model Community Pollinator Garden at East Hampton Town Hall.

She has lived part-time in East Hampton for more than 35 years. She divides her time and activism between East Hampton and Oaxaca, Mexico.

community outreach


Our little Free food Pantry

NPC has launched 5 Little Free Food Pantries on the East End.  The Neo-Political Cowgirls’ January Girls ally-ship workshop in art and friendship brought our community-building into the full calendar year with our 24/7 “Take what you need, give what you can” Little Free Food Pantries.


These are available for ANYONE to receive from, for free, and/or for anyone to give to.


The Neo-Political Cowgirls could not do our work without the ongoing support of Bill Costello and Men At Work Construction. Always there for us, always sharing their beautiful work. True fabric of our community!  

Without major support from the following granting partners, our work would not be possible. 

NPC Reviews

Spell-binding & creative

"My whole family loved today's virtual performance of Primavera, as well as the insightful question and answer session that followed.


What an engaging, imaginative, and hope-inspiring way to spend a Saturday evening. I didn't feel like anything was lost through the virtual element -- it was a different (although equally fun!) experience."
