We gather together to organize in community around the theme of building ethical relationships between land, water, place and people. Inspired by the “Water is Life” movement, we are creating a space for dialogue across different organizing efforts and communities. Featuring a 30 min. musical by Gabriela Seattle, report back panel on Standing Rock & local organizing, skill-share workshops, children’s story circle, open mic, and t-shirt & button making, and mini-fandango/bombazo! See schedule below–we will update with new developments! Free and all ages!
